DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Poured into an English pint glass. Really looking forward to this. I’ve been in Baltimore for almost four years now and haven’t been to Brewer’s Art until tonight. 3.5 A: Golden brown color. Very clear. One finger of head that didn’t retain all that well and left little lacing. 3.5 S: Really bready. Some citrus hops. 1.5 T: Horrible! Had the sour/spoiled wine taste that is often found in brewpub brews. In fact, most of the beers I had tonight had this taste. I couldn’t concentrate on anything else which was a pity since I expected a lot more. 3.5 M: Medium body. Smooth but nothing special. 1.5 D: I would have rather had a Miller Lite.

A pretty decent light session type ale. Nothing overwhelms (hence session). A bit of American pale ale thrown into the mix makes the hops and bitterness a bit more forward, but in the end belgian styled.

Lubiere (12958) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
An amber lae with a thin white head. A pleasant caramel aroma, fruity, faint hops, but nice. A good biscuit malt with light British hops, honest and good. On tap brewpub, Dec. 28 2009.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Isovaleric nose. Stale hops, a bit of cheese and some dust. I can see what’s happening, but it isn’t hitting my nose well. Clear copper pour, with a white head. Bland. Dry. Lightly bitter and a herbal hop tone. Overall, this is bland, but drinkable. Lightly hoppy and clean. Meh. A fairly average session ale. Nothing I would run to, but something to put down with friends.

Light mouthfeel with unusual musky floral flavors that make me think of wisteria, oddly enough. An unusual but tasty session brew.

translucent golden color with a small white head. flowery, subtly spicy aroma with some citrus fruit. nice medium mouthfeel - , maybe a little on the lighter side, and a little yeasty w/ light carbonation. taste - floral, caramel, spice, some maltiness. finish - malt, hops, citrus. not a bad pale ale, but thought there should be more to it.

TheBeerGod (6027) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
Draft at Brewers Art. Was waiting to hear back about this beer and Steve Frazier of Brewers Art calls this a "5.0% ABV Belgian Pale Ale". Bronze bodied (could be a shade lighter but it was a tad on the dark side in the bar). Nose is Hoppy and floral with soft tea notes, light toffee, soft malt and fruit. Taste is light toffee, chewy malts, spices, soft yeast, more tea leaves and flowery hops. Body is light-medium to medium. Carbonation is mild and restrained. Ends with more chewy malts, spices, flowery hops, earthy notes and fruit. Subtle yeast as well. Not a bad session style beer!
