COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We believe beer is magic! Houdini Extra Special Pale will make you a believer as well. A light, medium bodied brew, we use two classic American hops varieties. Centennial and Cascade create a concoction of mystique and complexity. No smoke and mirrors here.

Draft. Mild floral and fruity aroma. Pours clear golden medium white head. Mild sweet flavor. Medium-thin body, mild bitter finish. This one was ok, nothing special.

Berries and tree bark. I should have listened to K., who told me so in the first place.

Tap and billed as Escape. Not my cup of tea. I really couldn’t wait to finish this beer so I could move on. Sorry.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer #3 Asheville trip. Billed as Escape. Pale orange in color. Lighlty biscuit malts, citrus hops, bitter on the finish. Pleasant, but not spectacular. Just a solid APA.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2012
A dark golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and pine. The flavor is only slightly bitter with some lemons and caramel. This is more english than apa but a good session beer nonetheless.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Draft sampler at Asheville Brewing’s Merrimon Avenuey location under "Asheville Excape Artist ESP" alias. Cloudy amber hue, small white head that mostly lasted with good lacing, mild to moderate hoppy aroma with hint of spice, light body, slightly syrupy texture, moderate bittersweet flavor with initial taste of sweetness with sugar and rock candy notes, followed by a fine hoppiness. Even though something seemed somewhat off in the finish, this is still an enjoyable beer. Tasted on July 7, 2012.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Poured amber with a moderate head. I didn’t get a lot of smell to it, but found a pleasant amount of hoppiness in the taste. Pretty good and better than I expected.

changeup45 (1716) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Escape Artist Pale Ale. Copper color with a thick white head. Malty; caramel, dough, toast, light citrus hops. A good easy drinking brew with no thrills

b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Draft to taster. Looks decent; orange with sticky lacing. Smells alright; hoppy, but pretty mild. Tastes solid; good balance. Good mouthfeel too. An underrated PA.

mwbrady12 (469) - Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Strong aroma but thinner than expected appearance and complex taste with a basic mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
