Walkabout Brewing Worker's Pale Ale poured a clear, hay-hue with moderate carbonation trails and a white, sticky head. The nose was light citrus and sugar cookies.
Worker's Pale Ale started with a lightly hopped front and ended on a sweet and slightly flat sweet bread note. There was a slight bitterness in the linger that was out of place for such a subdued hop profile.
The hops never really came through as strong as I expected for a Pacific Northwest style Pale Ale, and the malts were maybe a bit too strong and sweet at the end. This is clearly a beer that shines better on tap, where a bit of additional carbonation brightens up the front and gives the hops a bit of support. In the bottle, Walkabout Brewing's Worker's Pale Ale is just barely average, which is a shame given the above-average experience it gives from tap.
