LongShot Grape Pale Ale

12oz bottle as part of the Longshot mixed sixer, $7.99 at The Wine Shop, Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, GA, USA. Notched July 2008.
Poured into the Sam Adams glass the beer has great clarity and initially a light, frothy head. The head fades quickly to leave some scant lace. Very bright orange color makes this look pretty good in the glass.
Aroma is a solvent like alcohol as are the initial tastes. Some fruity character, but not distinguishable as grape to me. I’m not sure if that’s the grape element, but whatever it is it creates an odd, solvent alcohol taste. The beer is not overtly alcoholic, but it seems to have an odd, drying, fume type character. Weird. No grape taste as such for me.
It’s odd, but the grape element seems to create an alcohol taste (wine like I suppose).
Refreshing and quite tasty, it’s OK, but I don’t think I would bother again. A bit odd.
