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.

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.

Draft sample at Cedricís Tavern at the Biltmore near Asheville, NC; clear darker amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of light citrus/fruity hops and malt sweetness. Taste adds more sweetness, light fruitiness and faint pine. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, clean with light citrus hop finish. Pretty hop light even for an English style, the light fruitiness is nice though. Easy drinking pale.

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.

Thanks to Marshall Hutcheson for bringing me a bottle from NC. Clear dark amber color, thin ivory rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is malt that moves through the palate without incident to a lightly bittered finish. Pretty simple brew, not enough to attract much positive attention.

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

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.

12 ounce bottle from a friend. A honey gold beer that is pretty much clear. A smallish almost white head leaves some lacing as it falls. An aroma of candied fruit, grain, and pale malts. The taste begins with some different kind of complex fruit. Again, it is candied. Hops are mild and taste of mangoes and lemon. Light caramel malts. More of a citrus finish.

Bottle from my brother-in-law while visiting the Biltmore House. It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of floralness, some fruits and really piney. The taste was of mild dry hoppy bitterness. Not bad.

Tasted at the Tavern at the Biltmore. Not as much hop aroma as I would expect. Crisp taste with some malt sweetness. Nicely balanced but served too cold. It is a drinkable beer, but not exceptional.

Draft pout at the tavern n Biltmore grounds. Nse with fruity hop and some sweetness from the malt. Taste of citrus hop with decent bitter finish. Nothing spectacular, but very refreshing after touring the grounds
