COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flat Earth Pale Ale is a Belgian pale ale. Inspired by beers like Orval and Rare Vos. Made with imported Belgian malt and a Belgian yeast strain. Our Belgian pale ale has a sweet malt aroma with traces of orange, plum and pear. Its complex malt backbone of biscuit and hints of toast to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. We hope you enjoy the fresh "Belgian" beer.

Pours a clear copper/amber with very little head but definite lacing. Aroma is floral, yeast and grass. Flavor is of yeast and biscuits. very mild. I don’t taste much fruit, just subtle biscuit-like flavors. A decent pale ale but really nothing at all amazing.

Bottle pours crystal clear copper (sort of like Element 115) with a short lasting head and some decent lace. The aroma is yeasty, floral, spice, peach, and overall pleasant. The flavor is malty sweet, bready, mild peach notes, caramel, and a spicy end. The palate is light to medium rich and somewhat quenching. You know, not a bad beer at all. If you take it face value, and do not try to evaluate it as a "Belgian Ale", I like it.

Dark orange body with a light khaki head. The aroma is funky with corn plants and cinnamon. The taste is herbal tea with peaches and and some decent spice in the finish. A relatively thin body. Overall, light and boring. Thanks for sharing, iowaherkeye.

Pours a lovley amber peach with great clarity and good head. Nose- definitely pick up pale malt and biscuit breadiness. Taste- strong belgian yeast flavour imparts lots of fruity esters. Biscuit and munich malts are strong in the profile of this beer. Beer finishes quickly in the mouth leaving a dry spicy finish from the hallertau hops. Very flavouful brew and reminds me of a slightly less biscuity version of my local micro’s (half pints) version of the style (the Son). First brew from this Twin City brewery and I am impressed. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Sampled at YEHA. Yellow orange body. Aroma is sweet malt, yeast. Flavor is golden hops, very fizzy taste - over carbonation. Weak.

Thanks to tytoanderso for the bomber. Clear amber/orange with a medium head. Aroma of yeast, over-ripe bananas and cane sugar. Tastes heavily of pears and bananas with some pepper. Syrupy texture, sweet finish.

Bright coppery orange. Slim, unlasting cap of off-white foam reveals the look of more like a cola drink then a beer. Some thin strings and a few specks of lace cling to the glass. Aroma is mostly of Belgian yeast which is kinda musty and dullishly doughy with a slight sweet nudge of malt and some metallic hints. Taste is crisp and yeasty with the flavors of crunchy doughyness, biscuity, a bit of musty stuff, pale malts, and some sweetness coming into the finishing areas. The finish itself is quite interesting and quick to enter, however, it drys out fairly well with yeasty fluffy leftovers and spicy, peppery, dry breadyness with a bit of tannins coming in. The body is about medium with a thin front and middle, which is quick. Its quite crisp and snappy though. That yeast kicks right in and grabs ya. The finish does help carry some weight with it but seems quite one dimensional in character with the yeast being the main factor in its overall ability to ensue a proper well-to-do impression. Drinks well enough but lacks some depth and complexity beyond the yeastyness that is truly the one thing about the beer that really does anything for me.
