COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2013
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.

BrettTaylor (464) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
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

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

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

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