Smuttynose Shoals Pale Ale Beer Review

Shoals Pale Ale
Smuttynose Brewing Co. – Portsmouth, NH
ABV: 5.6%

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 6
Surprisingly struggled a bit with this one. Maybe it had to do with the camera work? I started cross-body and the chug sped up as my arm opened up, allowing my chug receptical (read as “body”) to open up and allow the beer to flow like wine. Either way, it didn’t go down as quick as I would have liked and I was in a bit of pain for a good minute after the review..I’m regrouping as I’m typing this..OK, all set, time for another
How Much: 7
Sixers of this brew are sold around town for $9.49. Not a bad craft brew price at all, and if this beer had landed itself on the Stamped list it would definitely have a higher rating here
Uhhh…Taste: 6
Shoals Pale Ale isn’t going to wow anybody, but it won’t disappoint, either. It’s your average every day pale ale. I can definitely see myself ripping through a good amount of these while kicking around the house on a hot summer day. Shoals Pale Ale has a nice medium body, with a solid malt to hop ratio. It balances out nicely, but it is kind of grainy. It had a hint of fruitiness to it, but left a weird twinge that I can’t really explain. I’m not going to go out of my way to seek out this brew, but if somebody brought it to a BBQ I wouldn’t be disappointed
Gettability: 7
Shoals Pale Ale is stocked on 23 east coast states shelves year round.

Overall Rating:   6.2
