COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer not afraid to bare it all, just like the enthusiasts at Jerry Johnson Hot Springs, this Butte-copper hued, full-figured beer is a traditional English-style pale ale with earthy aromas and deep hop bitterness coming from the generous additions of English noble hops. Don’t be afraid to show off your pale side.

yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2015
It pours a dense, two-finger off-white head over an almost clear dark golden body. Quite a few micro-floaties. The aroma is a bit weak, mostly on the fruity, hoppy side though. Pine cone notes, grapefruit and a touch of pale malts. The flavor has some maltyness as a backdrop, with grapefruit notes, pine cones and resins, and a decent bitterness. Medium to full body and a nice carbonation. Semi-dry. Lasting but weak finish. Sure drinkable and all that, but it’s a tad boring I think. 150227

Hefig hopfiger Antrunk, erfrischend. Der Hopfen kann sich nicht ganz ausbreiten, bittere Noten stehen dagegen. Hell würzig, gut. 9/10/9/9//9

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades rather fast, leaving just a trace of white lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is mostly of a bready smell mixed with a little bit of a lighter fruity smell of apple, pear and orange smell with a decent showing of a caramel aroma as well. Some light notes of citrus and pine hop round out the aroma, creating a simple, but clean smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste mixed with some lighter notes of a citrus hop as well as some lighter caramel tastes. The caramel fades rather quickly with the bready taste taking on a more cracker like flavor. While this occurs some pine and earth come to the tongue with just a hint of fruitiness, leaving a rather dry and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of drier flavors and moderate hoppiness the feel is rather nice, with it creating a fresh crisp base. Overall – A fairly nice and slightly more crisp pale ale with a balanced level of hop and drier malt.

ABV 5.2% At the brewery Pours golden with light cream foam. Nose has floral notes and faint malts, with subtle accents of grain and honey. Flavor is primarily grass and soil - very english to me. Medium body with moderate carb and semi dry finish. Meh. Serving type: on-tap 05-18-2012

DuffMan (7227) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Re-rate:,On tap @ Truby’s in Columbia Falls. Medium amber body with a low white head. Delicate floral hop profile, lightly perfumery, somewhat reminiscent of Anchor’s Liberty Ale but pretty thin in the malt department.

Braudog (5938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. An amber-hued brew, pretty standard lookin ale. Easy to drink, clean and unoffending. But lacks any distinction ... Not bad, just a little boring. (#4656, 7/5/2012)
