COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pigskin Pale Ale is light in color yet high in malt and hop character. Crisp and clean like a well-executed touchdown pass, Pigskin Pale Ale finishes off with an end zone celebration of zesty, floral hops that says 6 points, American Style.

Tap @ Bardenay Eagle - Decent pale aroma, very little head. Started off with some nice hop bitterness, but fell flat on the back end in my opinion. There was some bready nuance that I just didnít jive with. Too many other great pales out there, but I wil try again in the future...

On tap at The Front Door Pours out a amber topped with a cream white head. A nice aroma of floral hops. Tast of light hops very little bitter. A nice brew for a hot summer day. Damb it is only February.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle (conditioned!) Impressive citrus and floral aromas. Light amber color with a frothy white head. Medium body with creamy/chewy carbonation. The flavor is hop above pale malt, lightly roasted. The finish is nicely balanced and the bitter tends to build. Itís just an excellent brew.

AlabastorJones (805) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
fogged golden orange hue with a huge rocky/frothy white head, sticky fresh hop nose, excellent hop body, delightful citrus notes and a mild green hop tinge to the finish. This is the 1st beer iíve had from the beer valley and I have to say that Iím impressed. Solid pale ale, reads like a slighted IPA, as any hardy pale should... and if you don;t believe me, drink one!

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
22 oz. bottle, from Johnís MarketPlace in Portland. Pours cloudy copper color with a really large and quite creamy off-white head that diminished at a leisurely pace leaving thick lace. Mildish aroma of toasty malts with citrus and floral hops. Flavor is good, toasty malts with a bit of toffee, orange zest, spicy pine and lemon rind in the finish. Medium body, a bit oily with gentle carbonation. Overall a cut above my expectations for the brew.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Pours a tawny gold color with a tall, lasting head. Superb retention with stick, clumpy, creamy lacing. Aromas of spicey hops and malt. Medium nectar w/ good carbonation. Very dry with a leathery hop component. The finish linger dry.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2007
From 22-oz. bottle purchased at Belmont Station--Poured a super carbonated body that erupted from the bottle and on to the floor. Amber-copper body under the mamoth white dome head. High carbonation accented the piny bitterness. Big hops nose. Citrusy, but more piny thatn floral. Bottle conditioned. A bit better than average, but not superb.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours amber with a strong white head. Very floral hops with a big pine and herbal character. Bottle conditioned so there was some yeast sitting at the bottom. Good hoppy pale, a bit different from the big citrus hop pales around.

pinkzambia (1505) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle: Clear copper color with a puffy off-white head. The hop aroma is mild and there isnít really much else in the aroma. The taste is pretty hoppy along with cardboard and a bitter trailer. Something is off in the aftertaste - a little tinny and something else.

StompingSpuds (1) - Weiser, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2007 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This particular bottle was flat and cloudy. This ultimately had a rather negative impact on the Aroma, Appearance, Flavor and the overall. An additional concern was that there was an inordinate amount of sediment in the bottle that rendered the final 3 or four ounces undrinkable.
