This NZ interpretation of an American Pale Ale greets the drinker with a big hop aroma with hints of Orange rind, and pineapple, followed by a strong, slightly biscuity malt Character. There is a big hop focus, which balanced nicely by the sweetness of the malt, finishes the beer with a pleasant lingering bitterness. Hints of clean alcohol on the palate point to the stronger nature of this Pale Ale. Sitting at 5.4% ABV this is a big beer all round. Founders brewery pride themselves on brewing full flavoured organic beers, which maintains a high level of drinkability. True to Form, Fair Maiden Ale achieves this, and will have you hooked after the first glass.
