Pours a dark amber color with a decent head that fizzled away after a few minutes. Smells of sweet malt, fruit and Flowery hops. Nice bitter hop bite, I can dig this beer. Full of hops and sweet malt, but mostly hops. If your not a fan of hops you wont like this. For me the more bitter the better. GO BUCKS! BEAT MICHIGAN!

Panzuriel (1340) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
On tap at Columbus brewing company restaurant in Columbus Ohio. Cbcs pale ale is a honey amber brew with a firm head of white foam. Nose is faint pine and floral hints. Taste is a delicate framework of hops over a decent medium malt structure. Body is lightly lively. A very nice apa.

Tasted from draft. Pours a copper color with white head. Aroma is pine and floral notes. Taste is a nice clean bitterness throughout with malt backbone. Moderate bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Pine, floral and caramel flavors. Medium bodied. Above average pale ale. Great beer for watching the columbus clippers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light crisp hop aroma, with some grassy notes. Pours a clear amber with a thin off-white head. Grassy hop notes are the predominant flavors, lingering bitter finish. Light and easy drinking, with a light mouthfeel. Overall a nice easy drinking beer for warm weather.
