Share This Review

Miami Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed by Biscayne Bay Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The pale pours a mostly-clear marigold and is topped by an inch-thick head of white foam that offers modest retention. There isn’t any lace or residue left behind but there is a thin soapy collar. Fine sediment is visibly afloat in the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is hoppy with a scent that’s floral, grassy and slightly sweet with tropical fruit.

Flavor

The palate begins with a cracker malt taste that shifts quickly to a bite of floral hops. That bitterness is mellowed gently by tropical fruit before finishing with a mild bite of herbal hops and cracked pepper. A backbone of tropical fruit lends some balance.

Mouthfeel

The feel is dry, crisp, and effervescent. It has a medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Overall

The Miami Pale Ale has a really hoppy palate whose IBU count approaches IPA status. Combined with high carbonation, the palate really emphasizes the hop flavor. The base is tasty and does offer some but is a little overwhelmed. Otherwise, this brew represents the style nicely.
