Benefiting from the accidental mixed six-pack from New Belgium Brewing, today’s beer is New Belgium Mighty Arrow Pale Ale.
New Belgium Mighty Arrow Pale Ale poured the color of weak tea without the cloudiness, topped with a loose, foamy white head almost no observable carbonation. It was surprisingly hop-forward in the nose with lots of pine.
New Belgium Mighty Arrow Pale Ale drank a little flat up front, with hints of grapefruit and mineral water quickly fading as it settled into a mediocre body of dusty malt covered by the New Belgium yeast almost all the beers have (think Fat Tire). There wasn’t much in the linger... I bit of dry bitterness and a distinct dryness.
New Belgium Mighty Arrow Pale Ale isn't bad; it just doesn't really excel at anything. I would pass.
