This crisp pale ale has a firm malt backbone provided by imported German malts. Late additions of crystal hops provide herbal and floral characteristics without intense bitterness. A perfect late summer refresher.

Half pint on cask at Fat Headís Cleveland on 10/11/13. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt and floral hops. Malty flavor with floral hops before a grassy finish.

Crystal Hops and German malts with a rich creamy head. Decent but nothing special.

Tap at FH, this one missed the mark for me, no real hoppy flavor from the hops at all, means a boring german style pale? perhaps. herbal is a good way to put it, as the brewer has done, just doesnt jive with what I want from a pale ale.

On tap. Pours a clear burnt orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral hops, light fruits. Flavor of very bready/stale malt, burnt malt, toasted malt, light fruits. Flavor is a bit stale, and a touch sweet, very disappointing. Aroma was ok but flavor was quite underwhelming. 6/4/5/3/11 (2.9/5)

Aroma: Hints of fruit with herbal and floral hop aromas. Appearance: Clear dark gold with light head. Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with a light sourness in finish. Palate: Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: The maltiness of this beer is a little overwhelming, isnít mellowed or balanced by the hops. Iím a little disappointed.
