D.L. Geary Brewing Company - Geary's Pale Ale

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. twist-off bottle, poured into a Mark Twain pint glass

Geary's Pale Ale pours a tawny, deep amber body with a large creamy light tan head. The retention and lacing are both excellent. The nose is sweet and malty, but fairly light on hops. There's a slight lagery aroma and a light cellary must that gives this ale an interesting and somewhat different character.

The mouthfeel is full-bodied with a robust and solid carbonation. Geary's is highly malty with a minerally hard water tone. The body of the beer is earthy, but somewhat understated. There's a seeming depth of flavor, but none is particularly marked. There's a moderate hop bitterness that gives this English-style Pale Ale a clear tie to the ESB. Seems as if there's an easy to see influence of the style in this beer.

Final Verdict: B
