While the trend is to go to extreme levels of hoppiness, we at Bucket think a great beer should be more than just its IBUs. We start the recipe with a variety of malts designed to deliver a toasty, nutty flavor and a satisfying consistency. We then add our hops in our own unique way to deliver more of the full flavor and aromatic profiles of the hops without extreme bitterness. The result is a bucket of floral aromas and notes of tangerine.

12 oz can. Deep dirty brown pour with a tiny off white head. Aroma dominated by caramel malt. Huge malt backbone that drowns out any sense of hops or depth. Boozy finish.

Sampled at 3rd annual RI Brewfest; Flavor starts lightly sweet with pale malt base with caramel hints. Lighter body, nearly thin and very grainy. A dusty grain flavor shows throughout the brew. I get very little, if any hop profile at all. This one needs some work.

pours clear, slightly amber tint darker than most pale ales. light aroma, maybe some fruity/hoppy notes. flavor light with med body, very sweet malts but not too over powering. very mild hoppy/fruity finish. pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer tastes like someone dumped a giant ashtray of cigarette butts int the wort. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
