COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing pale ale was created to be consumed while enjoying the bounty of the Bay and protecting local waters. Gold in color with a light body and pleasant hop bouquet of traditional noble German hops blended with the intense citrus of American hop varieties.

2015 BJCP Category: 18B American Pale Ale

AROMA: Piney, floral and green tea-like hop character. Some light maltiness, though not especially sweet. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Golden hue; near crystal clarity. Some Co2 visible. Small, white, foam; plenty of lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Lightly bitter and malty up front. Clean blonde/amber malt but no real specialty malt flavors. Hops impart a consistent spicy/grassy flavor throughout. Moderate bitter bite at the apex with a lingering dank bitterness. Solid, but not amazing. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; carbonation seems a little low for the style. Not refreshing, though it is smooth. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Interesting pale ale that combines German and American ingredients and flavors. I like it. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

It’s a typical pale...not bad and not great. I was hoping for a bit more coming from DB...i guess this is geared toward the mainstream beer drinker with just a little extra malt and hop flavor... meh...

on tap @ Devil’s Backbone / Roseland VA --- Clear light copper amber color, off-white head, full curtain of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that hits pretty hard on the 26 IBUs on the swallow, with the hops maintaining control the rest of the way. A light brew by nature, but has solid flavor all the way through.

Luvystypotables (1562) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Underwhelming beer a hint of hops and citrus on the nose, looks good amber color with a lasting white well laced head. Watery feel without much taste just a hint of hops, no lasting finish.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This is a golden yellow brew that has a nice hop aroma. It has a small white head and is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation
