Dog Island Brewing The Foggy Dew American Pale Ale at 5% ABV | 30 IBU (C$4.41 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 12-Apr-2019, reviewed 17-Apr-2019)

Appearance: near-opaque muddy pale amber with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, pine, citrus, caramel. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter finish. (4/5)

Started off smelling really promising, despite the somewhat unclean muddy appearance. However, the aroma didn’t sustain for long, fading into slightly less fruit and more caramel. The taste also didn’t quite follow through with the initial promise of the aroma. All in all, not bad, but nothing overly special. (14/20)
