COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The concept for our Single-Take Session Ale is this: a moderate gravity (11.7 P) Belgian-yeast fermented ale that enjoys lots of hop-flavor and hop-aroma character without exhibiting much hop-bitterness (only 20 IBUs). We want Single-Take to deliver a complex yet balanced flavor explosion that is bright and sprite and never fatiguing. A deft grist combination of floor-malted barley (Maris Otter and Bohemian Pilsner), wheat and rye provide the perfect stage upon which our whole hop actors (German Tettnanger, Czech Saaz, American Santiam and Amarillo) get to sparkle. Our Belgian yeast strain holds the entire flavor performance together with its firm, spicy and tart directorial oversight.

Kurtos (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a light hazy yellow. Aroma. Tropical fruits with a bit of caramel on the nose. Taste. I can taste a slight pineyness followed by a bit of pineapple, also i believe the marketing description accurately describes the taste of this beer.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2014
Poured a cloudy, opaque honey colour with up to a six-finger light tan frothy head that retained very well but laced poorly. carbonation high with very small bubbles. Aroma of pleasant fruity hops and a hint of sweet caramel. Taste mildly sweet with light hops bitterness. Light body. Smooth, dry finish and low bitterness. A good session ale.

Jmar33 (180) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Tap. Suffers a bit from a lack of body, as most session beers do. Nice enough smell and ok malt flavour but nothing in the mouthfeel to bridge those components together

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Awesome. Deep, hazy gold color so its opaque. The head is big, dense, white frothy goodness. It has a light aroma of faint malt and hops yet the aroma still satisfies. The ody is medium yet fully satisfying. The taste is a medium malt and bitterness making it a balanced beer good for a session.the finish has a nice bitter kick followed by a weak sweetness, and a closing bitterness.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at The Foundry (Mohamed Sultan Rd), Singapore, 4.5% ABV
Cloudy amber color with generous head. The aroma is moderately spicy, the mouthfeel is lean, dry; the flavor is well spicy, quite like Belgian beers; correct bitterness.
It doesn’t have a distinctive character to raise it above the crowd, but it’s a pleasant beer.
