Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Summer Pale Ales

Hot.  Damned hot.  I need something light, but not so light that it has no flavor (i.e. Lagers/Pislners).  So what do I reach for?  A Saison?  Hmmm, maybe, darned filling though.  A Pale Ale?  Ahhh, yeah, now that is more like it.  A typical Pale Ale will be light, a bit citrusy with the hops and lower alcohol, perfect for a grilled burger on a hot day.  But which? 

Rate Beer has released their top 10 list of their highest rated Pale Ales for summertime consumption.  So if you wish to jump onto the Pale Ale trail, this would be a good place to start.
