Long ago when cliffs were called castles and between them was a reef that meant danger, is a pale ale with great hop flavor and target gravity of 6%, making it dangerously good and a true Castle Danger Ale.

MNAle (66) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2015
1-1/2 inch cream head from an aggressive pour; 1/2 inch for a gentle pour. Amber, slightly hazy, color with moderate carbonation. Very nice citrusy aroma. Head fades moderately quickly, leaving patchy lacing. Initial taste is very much malt-forward, with just a hint of hop bitterness. Hops present themselves quickly, though. The citrus aroma and hops bitterness mixes well with the malt bready taste for a well-balanced overall taste/aroma. Great, thick mouth feel, enhanced by the carbonation. No booziness apparent. This is an easy drinking beer despite for the relatively high ABV. IOW, you could easily knock back 3 or 4 of these quickly and end up really drunk if you are not aware of the alcohol content. Overall, this is a very good, well balanced ale with a substantial malt backbone.

tmongoose (1726) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 26, 2015
12oz can shared. Second beer from this brewery and it’s not all that good. Pours a medium copper with minimal white head. Aroma is a tinny malt scent. Don’t know if it’s old or not. Flavor is almost medicinal malt. Terrible

Nero55 (873) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft. Dark copper with small creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and some grain. Light/medium body, medium citrus hop bitterness, hint of banana notes, caramel, and dry finish. Not very strong for a strong ale but not bad either.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 4, 2013
On tap at 7 West Taphouse - Duluth, MN. Warm aroma, lightly spicy and grainy. Sweet, bitter, and astringent. Husky and hot. Can’t get into this. There’s a coarse, grating roughness to the brew that really dilutes drinkability.

Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Had a wet paper towel scent, with a little skunky hop taste.
