This ale is as frisky as its namesake Cedric, patriarch of the St. Bernards who shared Biltmore House with the Vanderbilts. High quality grain and English variety hops give our full-bodied ale a delicate straw color with malt and fruit aromas. Less bitter than most pale ales, yet it still retains the characteristic lingering hop finish.

$5.00 pint at Cedricís Tavern at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Appearance: Faintly hazed, copper-gold body with a sustained coating of near white foam. Smell: Aroma of pale malts yielding a basic, bready barley character along with hop hints of florals and seed-popping lemon wedges. Taste: Simple taste of pale malts accented with sweetish traces of honey and a light, underlying breadiness. Hint of fruitiness. Touch of dried lemon peel and some soft florals preclude a medium-light bitterness, though itís sufficient enough to balance the initial sweetness and pave the way for a dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A competent, food-friendly pale ale, though I admit to only pairing it with the lone pint of Cedricís Brown I had prior.

Overall a good, drinkable, pleasant, unassuming beer that is worth the money to drink more of. Pretty simple.

Personally I prefer Biltmoreís wines, but Cedricís Pale was surprisingly good. Not too bitter, which is often the case with craft brews.

So it seems that they have replaced the Vanderbilt (or Cecilís) Pale Ale. Couldnít find it. Instead they have this Cedricís line, a Pale Ale and a Brown Ale available at almost all of the restaurants on the Biltmore grounds as well as in six packs for 10.50 at a couple of the shops. Pale golden, caramel, whitish cover. Aroma is fruity, apple, caramel, grassy herbal hop. Taste is caramel, bready, sweet, light spicy hops.

Clear Orange with white head. Poured from draft at Cedrics at the Biltmore. Sweet honey aroma. Has a honey aftertaste. Decent fruit flavor as well. Not really what I thought is a pale ale - but enjoyable

ben4321 (5551) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Location: Draft at the Biltmore, 1/1/15

Aroma: Thereís a clean hop component, a little orange/citrus, and some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-gold color with a small white head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, lightly sweet, with a clean bitterness on the finish
Palate: This one has a nice, clean feel, fairly light body, with a lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid, lighter example of the style. Fairly quaffable. Thereís not much to fault here as far as major flaws go. It worked nicely with the food as well.

Had a pint at the winery. Golden copper, nice smooth uniform white head. Smells like toasty malts and grassy hops. Flavor is pretty simple, but balanced. I get some cracker, some black pepper, and a subtle hop finish.

Tap @ Cedricís Tavern Biltmore Estate - pours clear amber, white head, which it retrains, nice lacing on the glass. Comes across as caramel dry malts. A Solid, flavorful, pale ale.

From bottle. Pours amber. Not much here in aroma or taste. Mild english pale ale with a thin taste.
