nøgne ø pale ale

This beer is a Norwegian import (from Grimstad.) It had a much darker color coming out of the bottle than I had expected (sort of a coppery brown), as well as a decent amount of head, which receded quickly. It was also more hazy than I'm used to in a pale ale.

The taste was a little more complex than a typical pale ale. It was hoppy, certainly, but there was also a bit of sweetness and malt flavor. I'd definitely prefer it over the Summit pale ale, though I think the 500ml-bottle was a bit pricey.

Nøgne Ø advertises itself as "The Uncompromising Brewery" and says it is American-inspired. The name translates as "naked island."
