Reviews by Style: Pale Ale

Monkey Knife Fight

Stone 16th Anniversary Celebration – Sample #7 Grassy nose, sweet cereals on the palate. Can’t resist a monkey. Or a fight.

Copper Moon Summer Pale Ale

I’m on the road this week, driving to Seattle for the 2012 Locus Awards. I’m also taking my niece and nephew to a Giants/Mariners game while I’m in town. Should be a whole lot of fun. Night Shade have a couple of horses in the Locus Awards race, notably first novels God’s War from Kameron Hurley and Soft Apocalypse from Will McIntosh, and the outstanding (if I do say so myself) anthology, Eclipse Four, edited by Jonathan Strahan.

Bitter American

If you put a chimpanzee in a space suit on your product, I will buy it. Bitter American pours clear, light amber with a frothy two-finger head that leaves little in the way of lacing. Mouthwateringly piney on the nose. Citrus and hops on the tongue, with light carbonation.
