COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American standard, BBC APA is a full bodied and heavily hopped American Ale. It is copper in color and brewed with a blend of pale and crystal malts, balancing the citrus and pine flavors from large doses of American and English hops to create a very drinkable, hoppy ale. BBC APA is a hophead’s dream!

Bottle from Beer_Hawk... thanks Stephen! Aroma is light and fresh with a slight apple note. Very light on the nose, not to much there to describe. Cloudy, light brown color with a very small and bubbly head. Flavor is bitter, almost to the point of being a little rotten. Plus, I find that the dryness of the beer is really making it hard to enjoy anything else about the beer.

12oz bottle. I wouldn’t call this one a gusher but more of a foamer that slowly came out of the bottle. Poured a medium golden color with a huge sized head. Aromas of roasted grains, earthy, floral, and toasted caramel. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and lighter floralness. For the huge head and foam, I didn’t expect the nearly flat body.

Never have been a big fan of BBC beer. Probably should be since I live here but in general I prefer other breweries.

Spicy grassy nose with hints of pine. Pours golden pale with a thin white head. Hoppy piney very earthy with a weird off flavor that I can’t put my finger on.

From bottle pours amber with lots of fluffy off white head, leaving tons of lacing and head that doesn’t go away. Nice hoppy flavor, nice finish.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 this is not a hophead dream. It is a sadistic fuckheads dream. Shit this is worthless, aspirin tasting shitty malts. I’m thinking this beer is way past its prime. No hop aroma or flavor at all. Malts tasted very stale.

Not very impressive. Can’t quite pinpoint what was wrong with it, just not very well balanced, somewhat weak flavor and not strong on the palate either.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours with an amber-brown body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet with a strong bitter, hoppy finish and a vary slight rotten fruit note. Medium bodied, dry and warming.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 28, 2007
Pours a copper/iced tea looking color. Head is egg-shell and a little thin, but still manages to leave great lacing. Aroma is funky, vegetable hops, basil and a starchy, boiled noodles smell. Taste is pointed hops, pine, basil, pencil shavings, with a little sweet caramel for malt. Bitter aftertaste. Really a hop centric beer, unbalanced. Bought this 12 oz bottle from World Market in Vienna, VA.

Not very much going on in the way of aromas. Pours tea colored with a small head. Flavors of tea and citrus. Overall an average pale.
