When I don’t feel like any specific style of beer I usually grab a pale ale from the fridge as I always seem to have a few on hand. Also when I just need to drink a quality beer I usually grab a Smuttynose or something from Widmer as it is hard to go wrong from these 2 breweries.
The Drifter Pale Ale from Widmer is a solid pale ale providing a nice balance of malts and hops. Color is a deep copper with slight white head. Aroma has a bit of malt and some nice hop smell. Nothing overpowering but certainly pleasant. Taste is much the same with some sweet malts that give way to grapefruit hops.
Very smooth and easy to drink. This is a great example of a pale ale and something most beer drinkers would enjoy. Pros: Very well balanced and full of flavor Cons: Alcohol Content: 5.7% ABV Calories: ??? IBU (Bitterness): 28 Rating: Brewers Website:Widmer Bros
Brewers Description: Kurt and Rob Widmer have never been known to “follow the leader”; their take on a pale ale is no different. With its unique citrus character, smooth drinkability,and distinctive combo of hops and malts, drifter pale ale is truly an original.
