Ithaca Pale Ale
I picked up an Ithaca sampler pack, so this is the first post of several related to that sampler pack. My first beer in the pack is the Pale Ale. The aroma is very floral, hinting at the hops to come in the beer. It has a nice dark amber color with a soft head. The taste is sweet due to the malt, but a clean and crisp after taste with a slight bite due to the hops. The Pale Ale reminds me of its counterpart brewed by Troegs. The alcohol content is 5.8% ABV. It is a refreshing summer beer and I highly recommend it for those warmer months.
