The winning beer in a 2014 taste competition. It has a real crisp flavor to it, a bit fruity or citrusy as well. I can see why it won.

It must be the crystal hops, I’m not sure, but there is some flavor that I really love in this beer.

Bridgeport pale ale Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a good staying power, slowly fading over time to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a citrus smell with some grapefruit and lemon and a bit of a sweeter orange smell. Along with these aromas comes some notes of a grainy smell as well as a little bit of a herbal and floral nose as well. Taste – The taste begins with a grainy and malt forward flavor with a modest showing of a grapefruit hop upfront. There is a light fruitiness of a sweet citrus and melon flavor right from the start as well, which with the malty flavors create a rather consistent base flavor. While the grapefruit is lighter upfront, it is accompanied by some new hop flavors of an herbal and pine nature in the end, which all in all end up leaving a rather crisped and malty hop taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a brew of 5.2 % abv., with a lower carbonation level. For the blend of malty and hoppy flavors, the thicker body (for a 5.2 % beer) is quite nice, really accentuating those flavors rather well. Overall – This was a rather enjoyable pale ale with enough hop to keep it exciting, but yet not too much to overwhelm the easy drinking pale ale style.

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR as Conviction Pale Ale. Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Hops, mild sourness, mild bitterness and dry malt in the aroma. The flavour is sourish hops, bitterness, grainy malt and some dryness. Dry for a Pale Ale. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is floral and nicely hoppy and really quite inviting. Taste is lightly bitter and refreshing. Easy drink.

Sledutah (5738) - Utah, USA - MAR 24, 2015
22oz bottle (labeled as Conviction Pale Ale) picked up at Albertsons in Boise
Pours clear golden with a small off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is malty, straw, honey and herbal. Taste is sweet, herbal, bisquity and citrus
Not sure how I feel about this one, didn’t like it at first but it grows on you. But I don’t think I’ll finish the bottle.

willisread (615) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2015
12oz bottle from Mitsuya’s Liquor in Asagaya. Poured into a snifter. Hazy golden orange color with a medium-sized off-white head that stuck around for most of the beer. Honey, malty, caramel on the nose with slight pine needle undertones. Very sweet on the palate...overly in my opinion. A slight hint of bitterness on a long dry sweet finish. Not balanced enough.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is malt and fruity hops. Taste is a nice fruity hop flavor balanced by a malty backbone. So tasty! Great lacing.

Bottle from Walmart. Hazy orange/golden in color. Sweet fruity nose with a little bit of a spicy hop character. Moderately hopped with a decent malt backbone. Fairly average.
