The FBC Pale Ale is a cross between two styles. The caramelized malt tones and the lower carbonation levels are in the English style, and the bitterness and color are more American. The aroma is derived from a blend of British hops, which gives the beer a fine rounded aroma. The British hops are far less assertive than their American counterparts, which lead to a more agreeable aroma profile for a British Pale Ale.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
On tap @ Faultline. Clear orange beer with a white head. Definitely some butter and lemon juice to this. Not very good. Slight butter, some toasted bread, and a lot of grains. Decent enough orange peel hop aroma and flavor, I guess. Weird watermelon rind flavor to the finish. No thanks.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 10, 2012
This ale had almost no aroma. Was a crystal clear amber color that was bitter at first then sweet then back to bitter. Overall a good combo. It was light bodied and crisp. Not bad
