COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fine American ale. We use a blend of Munich malt and Two Row barley as a base and create an assertive taste by adding cluster hops!

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Sampled twice - the first time there was a buttery note that was kind of ...disgusting, I guess. The second time it was not nearly as bad. I don’t know if it was from a different keg or (shudder) I had gotten used to it, but my rating is for the better pint. Otherwise my rating would be around 2.8. Nice crisp hops, some subtle caramel malts. I think this would be the best beer in their regular line up if they can sort out the quality issues.

NachlamSie (2724) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Pint at the brewpub. Decent APA. Citrusy nose with decent grapefruit and pine, wet hay and a little metal. The flavor is decently hoppy as well. Good balance with malt but there’s a little sour note. Average.

A light hop aroma. Now this is decent. Not real hoppy but definitely has some hops to it that finish a bit more bitter than the body. Still sessionable and good.

decaturstevo (4872) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Lightly hazed gold pour with white head and lace. Sweet caramel malt with light citrus hops. Alot of residual sugar sweetness followed by a nice bitter. Medium bodied but foamy. Pretty good beer.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
A lightly hazed amber ale with a thick mocha head. In aroma, sweet butterscothc malt with light British hops. In mouth, a sweet buttery malt with grassy hops, very boring. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

Bif (1385) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2011
On tap- Served a nice copper color with a small head that faded slowly to lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness and citrus with a hint of grain. Mild sweet flavor with a bit of grain. Has a nice bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Fairly medium body quite smooth and refreshing. Nice easy drinking beer. Nothing fancy here just a nice everyday beer. Goes good with their pizza.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Appearance: Near clear, copper-toned body with a fizzy, though persistent, white head. Smell: Spicy, earthy, mildly citrusy hops in the fore, fairly pale malts in the middle, and, as is Blackhorse’s wont, some lightly buttery diacetyl in the back. Taste: Pale malts with an added dose of sugared sweetness. The hops begin spicy and earthy, then rolls out some hints of lemon zest. Medium (if even) bitterness. Finishes drying, but with some final bittersweet and buttery hints. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: With diacetyl creeping into their entire lineup, well, that’s just sloppy brewing. Trying my very best to look past such carelessness in one’s craft, it would be an acceptable pale ale.

Knoxville Brewer’s Jam sample. Poured a clear amber with a one finger white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Flavor was malty, with a citrus finish. Good beer.
