Baxter Pamola Xtra Pale Ale

Here’s another beer from Baxter that I picked up. They are also not distributed in Jersey, so I was interested to try it.


ABV: 4.9%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Brilliant clarity, bright golden in color. Pamola pours with a nice creamy head and subtle malt and hop aroma. Crisp, clean, effervescent start with a touch of malt character and a balanced bitterness. Hop flavors linger nicely. Finishes clean, crisp and dry with a light body. Pamola is brewed with pure, soft Maine water from Lake Auburn; three different hop varieties, plus domestic and imported ‘Character’ malts provide complexity, color, and body while making use of a clean, well attenuating, top-fermenting, American ale yeast. The beer is then cold conditioned for a smooth, clean and crisp flavor. This one is extremely drinkable!”

Random: The description of the beer uses the word “clean” four times.

This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated quickly. It didn’t leave any lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, golden-yellow with heavy carbonation. The nose had grass and quickly went into sweet malt and bread. The taste had light bitterness with grass and then malt with some sweetness. The flavor was very subtle and drank more like an amber than a pale ale. It had a thin body with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with grain. This was $2.19 for the can at Half Time, which breaks down to $.18 per ounce. This beer was drinkable, but wasn’t anything special. I wouldn’t have it again.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
