Happy Hour: Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale

If you enjoy wheat beers, you're most likely familiar with the Widmer Brothers. Its American brew is an incredibly well-known Hefeweizen. I got my hands on a six pack of Widmer's latest creation, Drifter Pale Ale ($8.99). Typically, pale ales are made with Cascade hops, but Drifter uses a different variety called Summit. These hops provide an intense citrus flavor; seriously, it tastes like there's orange juice in the beer! A touch of caramel malt balances out the tartness of the citrus.

Although I normally prefer light beer, this refreshingly smooth brew is crisp and clean with only a slight bitterness — making it highly drinkable. If you enjoy sipping new, innovative brews, definitely give Drifter Pale Ale a try.

I paired mine with the Schlow burger, but it would be welcome with pizza or fried seafood. Have you tasted Drifter or any of the Widmer Brothers' other beers?

Sounds good - I don't like very bitter beers, and I love citrus.

I think I'd like this...I prefer pale ales, and I love when they have a hint of citrus flavor to them.
