Captain Lawrence Fresh Chester Pale Ale
Captain Lawrence Fresh Chester Pale Ale from the brewery when I went with him on a visit to New York. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy off-white colored head that lingers for a short time and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of fresh grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, passion fruit, and grass. The taste is light bodied with a nice caramel backbone before plenty of fresh tasting hops hammer the tongue. They leave behind a bitterness consisting of lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine. The alcohol content is 5.6% ABV. This is a wonderful pale ale and an excellent example of the style. If you can get your hands on a bottle or growler of this beer, do not pass on the opportunity.
