I’m Irish; therefore, Guinness is Mother’s milk. If, however, I wasn’t Irish, I may consider Dogfish Head’s Shelter Pale Ale Mother’s milk. This coppery ale has a smooth, malty, non-overpowering taste that makes it one of my most favorite beers. Its head is extremely light and its smell has hints of caramel- when I drink it, I feel like there is a party in my mouth and everyone is invited!
Dogfish Head is a fabulous brewery that makes some wild beers. I haven’t had one from this brewery that I didn’t enjoy, but the Shelter Pale Ale is by far the standout among giants. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Pale Ales.
