Axl Pale Ale

Maker: Milking It Brewery (Royal Oak, MI)

Style: American Pale Ale

ABV: 6%

Christy, barmaid at my favorite Detroit pub, and former King Brewery (Pontiac, MI) employee is a partner in this new microbrewery in my town, Royal Oak, Michigan.

It’s what I like in a Pale Ale.  It has plenty of hoppy bitterness, but a touch of sweetness and a relatively dark color and full body with a tiny citrus tang in the finish.  King’s will indeed be missed, but this beer is a fantastic start for Milking It.  If this is any indication of what’s to come, Michigan is going to have yet another GREAT microbrewery.
