Beer: Pale Ale
Beersperts: Adam H, Joby J, Scott B
Beerspert Panel Rating: 6.3
Available: Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Kansas, Mississippi, and Indiana
Notes from the brewery:
Amber-colored, medium-bodied British-style ale with a smooth, mildly-hoppy character.
CAL (12 oz.): 155
Notes from the Beersperts:
Mild hoppy taste, unusual for a pale ale.
A woody, nutty taste with not much of an aftertaste.
Good beer, I wouldn't go out of my way to find it though.
I could see myself drinking this as a session beer.
After drinking a couple drinks it grew on me.
I could see myself ordering it at a bar.
Given the choice between this pale ale and others I would choose this because of the lack of hoppyness.
I could pick up some fruit notes with a caramel finish.
