109. Tuckerman’s Pale Ale (Draft)

I originally reviewed this one from a bottle (click here) and while visiting North Conway, NH this weekend was able to try it on draft. While I do not go out very often I truly enjoy draft beer as it is simply better than anything that comes from a bottle. As my original reviewed stated this is a solid pale ale with minimal aroma, smooth taste and a bit of a fruity taste. Minimal aftertaste and almost no bitterness make this a good choice for even a casual beer drinker.

Brewers Description: Our flagship Pale Ale, released in 1998, is brewed with specialty malts, some grown in Maine, and four types of hops. After fermentation, it is cold conditioned and dry-hopped in lagering tanks for maximum taste and quality. It is naturally carbonated in the bottle or keg using a German process called “krausening”, where a small amount of fresh fermenting wort is added. This produces a delicate carbonation and superior flavor. From the Mash Tun to store shelves is a 30 day process. The Tuckerman Pale Ale is available by the ½ barrel keg, 6-pack, 24 bottle case and in mixed 12-packs with the Headwall Alt.
