COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
West Coast style pale ale loaded with hops from the noble vine. We utilized some of the finest pilsner malt available and melded the flavors and aromas of some of the Pacific Northwest signature hops. Golden in color with a pillowy white head. Crisp and hoppy. Cheers! 5% ABV

22oz bottle purchased at a market in Stockbridge. Big excitement followed by even bigger disappointment. Always happy to find a new brewery that Ive never heard of but these guys have some work to do. The bottle I tasted must have been handled incorrectly as I doubt they would purposely sell something as nasty as what I tasted. Poured most of it down the drain.

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle at home in Sheffield, MA with the family. Pours clear yellow with a fine, foamy white head. Some bready pale malts in the aroma, hints of lime. Light to medium sweet flavor with grassy bitterness, dry biscuits and light grains. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Bitter grapefruit on the finish with some grainy straw and moderate sweetness. So so.

22oz bomber into a super pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden hay yellow with bronze status that also omits vivid orange highlights when viewed in the right light. Head is large, massive and fluffy. Aroma is piney, citrus with grapfruit, malted cedar, and hoppy. Taste is nicely hoppy and refreshing with a nice hop bite that lingers in the tounge and almost welcomes an ipa status but then subsides with the sessionable abv and pilsner qualities and settles softly in the aftermath. A gloriously refreshing brew with the hop charateristics of a above average ipa. And with the west coast flavor running rampant this is an excellent brew.
