Whale’s Tale Pale Ale

12 oz can from CBX, Charleston, SC, USA. $1.99.
Beautiful light copper pour with superb clarity and a nice head and decent carbonation. Despite the glass being impeccably clean, the head is not retained well and there is no lace.
Clean malts and a light alcohol touch in the nose.
Tastes continue the clean feel with sharp malts giving way to some middle sweetness and then a dash of hops in the ending.
The aftertaste gives a pleasing and satisfying biscuit malt feel that is reminiscent of an English Pale Ale.
Very tasty and pleasing, an APA that isn’t really an APA at all – more depth of character, and a beer that reminds me somewhat of an English style brew. Interesting.
Cans are a bonus and I could see this doing a job in many outdoor circumstances.
