3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Huge foamy head, the type that flows up out of the glass but is so densely foamy it doesn’t spill over the sides at all, dark cloudy copper after a carbonated pour. The hop scent hits first then the caramel, molasses/malty aroma. The taste is bitter hay hop upfront quickly fading to a doughy malty fizzler. I have to say, the brewer’s description was pretty accurate. I’m used to inflated run downs, bit this one is on the money. A solid English pale.

Had on tap at brewpub. Golden pour. Aroma of vanilla and bread. Flavor was malty at first followed by pine cones. Not that I have eaten pine cones before, but you get it. Bitter, sticky finish.

Pours a golden brown with a white head that fades quickly and leaves only a trace of lace. Nose and taste are of balanced malts, a touch of grain and subdued English hops. Worth trying if your in the Burgh. The brewery is definitely worth stopping into as it is a completely different experience.

Draft at brewpub. Pours a slight copper color with lacey head. Piney hop aroma dominates the nose. Taste is very caramelly with a tinge of hoppiness. Finishes with a slight linger on the tongue. Really good offering.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear yellow with white head, aroma has notes of some slight hay, grass, corn and some slight funky sour wheat. A bit weird, but the taste is what got to me a bit, a weird mix between sour grain and grass bitterness with a touch of bread in there. Interesting, not sure if this was intentional but it seemed a bit off...

Pours golden from tap with a thin white head. A bit of floralness on the nose. Nice grapefruit on the tongue with a hint of bitterness. Clean finisher. Not bad.

My favorite offering when I was visiting... smooth and rich malt profile, and nicely hopped. Nothing compared to American Pale Ales of the west coast, but still a delicious beer.

On tap at brewpub. Gold with medium white head. Not much aroma. Flavor is caramel and pine. Like most of their stuff, nice and sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Brewpub. One of the better beers I sampled here. Really nice herbal hop, light toasty malt. Flavor is pine & herbal hops, light caramel, yeasty fruitiness. Yeasty fruitiness comes out more in the finish with solid, nearly overpowering bitterness.
