COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Raise a pint to help us fight multiple sclerosis (MS)! Our new road cycling team, Boscos Cycling, is racing this fall (in Memphis, Nashville and Little Rock) to raise money to find a cure for MS. Boscos will donate $1 to the Mid-South Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for every pint of Derailleur Ale sold. Derailleur Ale is a pale ale mildly hopped with Cluster and Willamette hops.

Clear golden with a grassy leafy ’hop fart’ like aroma with a bit of grass pollen. The flavor is a bit more palatable but a little light overall. Light grassiness, light bitterness, light cracker and toffee malt, light finish with a funny herbal hop aftertaste.

On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock, AR. Pours a crystal clear, copper-gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is thin, papery caramels with some florals and touches of citrus. Flavor is similar. Papery florals with some citrus notes and touches of earth. A bit grainy with a thin caramel sweetness before this finishes mostly dry with a thin malt and very light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a thin body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a thin, papery pale ale with a few floral notes and a light caramel. Eh...

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Light malt aroma and perfumy hops. Pepper sweet malt with a light perfumy bitter. Light medium body and fizzy.

Tap in Nashville. Typical ale. Good color. Bitter aftertaste. Probably would pass over this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Tap. Light amber with small head. Watery. More malt than hops. Not sure what this is, described as pale ale, but doesn’t have the right flavor.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Appearance: Served up a clear, gold-copper body with a slim, near white head.

Smell: Floral with a noted hint of mint along with mild citrus notes atop the basic base of pale maltiness.

Taste: Mild flavor of pale malts, faint toasted grains. Low sweetness akin to a lick of golden syrup. Restrained, soft floral hop tones with touches of citrus and mint leaf. Ample bitterness; enough to balance out the initial sweetness. Drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, albeit just barely. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Effective, if a bit tame, even for a pale ale. Always happy to use my alcoholism for a good cause, though!
