Fuel & Fuddle Pumphouse Pale Ale
I ordered a Fuel & Fuddle Pumphouse Pale Ale while at Fuel & Fuddle in Pittsburgh. This beer is brewed by Smuttynose for Fuel & Fuddle. The beer pours an amber color with a thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma consists of lemon and pepper hops with malty base. The taste is malty with lemon and bitter grapefruit but a good bitter hop finish. There is a pretty dry aftertaste. The alcohol content is 5.4% ABV. I thought that the Pumphouse Pale Ale was a good pale ale but not for non hop-heads. The hops were more in the foreground than in the background, but very enjoyable.
