Millstream Iowa Pale Ale

The Millstream Brewing Company is in Amana, Iowa and has been brewing since the mid-1980's. This 5.7% ABV beer pours a slightly hazy burnt orange and amber in color. There is a short, somewhat creamy head of off-white foam. The aroma is toasted malt, light caramel, lemony and grassy. The flavor is a perfect juxtaposition of toasted and caramel malts and lightly fruity and grassy bitter hops. There is some tea with lemon. It is lightly carbonated, appropriate for the style, and drinks smooth and easy. This is a great take on an English pale ale.
