I had this beer when we stopped at Fins, which was on Route 1 in Rehoboth Beach. I had previously been to the location in town in Rehoboth and loved it. I was really excited to stop there for dinner during our trip. I thought the fish was amazing and their beer list wasn’t half bad. The side dishes could have used a bit more flavor, but they were decent. This was the beer that I reviewed with my dinner and my second 3rd Wave beer of the trip. Let’s see how this one went.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our take on the classic American Pale Ale style: A clean, crisp, light bodied beer, with a mild hop flavor.”
Random: I was not digging the pint glass they gave me for this one.
This beer poured with a one finger head that dissipated immediately. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, cooper color with no carbonation visible. The nose was all malt with some sweet bready notes. There were very little hops and what came through was just grass. The taste was also overly malty with very little hops. It was a lot of bread and caramel. They weren’t kidding about a mild hop flavor on this one. The body was on the lighter side with equally light carbonation. It had a long finish with cracker and caramel. This beer was only alright and definitely not what I’m looking for when I pick up a pale ale.
