Smutty's pale ale is a classic pale ale, smooth and flavorful yet clean and easy to enjoy. A stunning amber color, it leads with scents of earthy and piney hops that are balanced by notes of husky grains and dried stone fruit. Flavors of toasted biscuit and caramel malt are front and center on the palate, with supporting notes of peach, pear and citrus zest. The medium-bodied mouthfeel offers a lightly creamy texture that's complemented by ample carbonation and sticky flavors of orange oil and resin.
