On tap at Lennies / Bloomington Brewing Co on 14 March 2010 (as Special Nugget Pale Ale). No ABV stated. Amber colour. Clean, fresh and moderately hoppy. Firm bitterness. Pleasantly drinkable but maybe a little short of depth in the flavour department. Didn’t quite finish the job for me.

I had the pleasure of sampling Bloomington Pale ale at BBC in Bloomington. I sampled it from a hand pump in two different variations. One was made with cascade hops, the other with nugget hops. This rating is for the special brew with nugget hops. Murky yellow in color with a very pronounced head, the nugget was more bitter in taste and aroma than the original, however, was not overpowering in either. It was very smooth and drinkable, however does not have a lot of flavor. I have rated tihs version slightly higher because extra hops add extra flavor.
