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.

Light bronze amber with thin head. Bitter floral aroma with some citrusyness. Bitter citrusy body with a honeyed finish. A pleasant harmony of bitter and sweet. Medium to think bodied. An easy drinker in the British bitter style.

Light amber color. Lots of caramel malt and citrus hops going on.Fairly full bodied for a pale ale. Decent, but hardly particularly memorable.

Nose is floral with some bready malts, some pale malts and light citrus. Pours golden with a soft head. The flavor is bready and pale malty with notes of floral hops, light citrus. Starts pleasant, but the finish ends up aspiriny and lightly vegetal. That kills it for me.

Cask at Horse Brass. Some haters here. I thought this was a somewhat malty and tasty pale ale. Hops. Nice head. Good flavor. Very enjoyable.

Bomber bottle from Jon and served in standard no-nik pint glass: Uniforms are a golden hue with a solid helmet of froth, the cheerleaders are quite cute with the fancy lace. I guess the game is being played near a PNW hop field for I smell notes of piney, herbal, peppery and citric hops. That must be a bread factory down the dusty road. The taste has a nice balance of running hops bitterness, passing light herbal and earthy notes with a supporting pale and sweet malt special team effort. The mouth feel is lively enough but a bit chalky and dirty. Overall the winning touchdown drive stalled in the red zone but the field goal execution was right down the middle.

22. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a towering, sudsy platinum blonde head. Rich sweet piney nose. Delicious. Creamy medium body with plenty of active carb. Nice big oily, acidic hop bite, all pine, from the attack to the finish. Mild biscuit and caramel under that. Long resinous, biting finish. Very pleasant and refreshing--can definitely see why they would name this one for a sport that has you indoors on the couch all day in the fall and winter. Very sessionable.
