COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogwood Pale Ale is an English-style pale ale, well attenuated with fruity, estery overtones. A blending of three hop varieties in three separate additions provides a clean bitterness. Whole leaf Cascade hops are added directly into the fermentation tank called "dry-hopping" in order to achieve a floral aroma. It is naturally carbonated for a smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Re-Rate 5/1/04 - Tried this beer again and liked it even more so I'm increasing my scores. A great beer for relaxing after a long, hot summer day. Cloudy, orange color with light carbonation. Floral hop aroma and bitterness with a balanced flavor.

This is a fairly smooth beer with a great hop aroma and flavor. A good session beer.

I loved the aroma of this beer. Almost as flowery as its namesake. Nice hop balance. A great pint!

On tap at the Bistro, T gates, Atlanta’s Hartsfield airport. My first beer on this Georgia (ahem) business trip. Really nice and sweet, very little hop character, a truly fine example of an EPA. Very fresh, lively.

Orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fairly sweet (orange) and sweet. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and very sweet. Mild slightly bitter hops. Nicely balanced. Lots of orange and spice flavors. English style pale ale. Very smooth taste. Extremely nice smooth finish. Mouthfeel is full and round, Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. And once again…. DAMN IT ALL… they aren’t around anymore

Re-Rate 06/10/02: This ’puppy’ has been a ’Fermentin’, as it just did the ’Fizzy’ pour, and the additional ’Yeasty’ tones in the nose gives it away. Cloudy orange in color, beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, sweet, and a tad ’earthy’ from the yeast, citrus also noted. Front sweet, top light, the finish is dry, acidic, nicely hopped.

EPA, #3 for night. Courtesy of Ross. He definitely knows what I like. Dogwood Summerbrew was very very good. I’m sure this won’t disappoint. I like the English Pale Ales and am eager to sample this one. Huge billoughy head out of bottle. Light Amber color. Smells of quality. Not as bitter as I expected. Smooth, very drinkable. Nice hop/malt presense. Not a typical southern Pale Ale. Very good. Not outstanding but very good. Ross you do one hell of a job selecting brews. Again very good brew. Dogwood lives up to its reputation.

Copper hazy and rich. Head is sticky and froths over. Slowly dies a very painful death. Nose is exqusitely balanced. The floral element and the sticky malty backbone blend together and create something wonderfully aromatic. Sweet, piney and honeylike. Flavors are excellent as well. Subtle. The hops lay down next to the malt, neither truly bids for dominance. Very balanced. Well crafted. Slightly oxidized. Not near as much as the stout but a slight bright copper pierces through in the after palate. Hops are slightly stale but not to the beer’s detriment, this simply accentuates the malt sweetness that lingers after every sip. G-rat

Good color, flavor and aroma for a pale ale. Smooth, medium bodied with a rich hop aroma. Great with some hot wings or something bbq’ed.
