Angler’s Pale Ale

Interesting one this.
This had been kicking around a couple of stores in Atlanta for a while, and it had been in a couple of bars for a while but I had passed it up for a long time. However, I pop into the Midway in East Atlanta for a quick beer and there it is in the cooler. I thought it may have been hanging around for a while, but when I checked the bottle it had a 06/2008 bottled on date – well within acceptable times. Grabbed one.
Darker than expected pour from the 12oz bottle into the Allagash flute. Nice head, but it fades quickly. A little lace.
This is a surprising beer because it has an odd, American Barleywine taste to it. Hoppy and alcoholic without being too hoppy and too alcoholic! Pretty complex I thought. Not really my cup of tea but I think I would try it again and say it was worth trying. Interesting.
