Grape Pale Ale!

February 19, 2008

At the last trip to the wine monger WineMad saw a 6 pack of 3 each of Sam Adams “LongShot”, one is Grape Pale Ale (click for reviews), the other is Weizenbock, which has clove flavors that WineMad cannot abide in beer. We just had to try something called Grape Pale Ale, so we grabbed a box.

The label says “Ale brewed with natural grape flavors & maple syrup added”(!!). The result is a beer with a light fruitiness, not nearly as sweet as one might expect from the label, very refreshing and easy to drink.
