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.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 TAP: at Bulldog Lowertown (St. Paul, MN) on 1.25.09. Slightly murky orange pour, low head. Nice belgian spiciness in the taste, along with pear, orange, malt, and bread. Sweet malt aroma with orange and spice. Hops are faint. Very nice beer!

Bright aromas with scent of medium roasted malt and dried fruits. Orange brown color with little to no head. Roasted malty flavors with some fruity notes and orange peel. Slight burnt toast flavor. Thin palate with weak duration. Lightly bitter. Aroma and flavors are good but appearance and palate are weak. Bottle may be old but it sounds like this beer is pretty unpredictable.

bottle - Gusher. This one made a mess. Once I had cleaned up and it finally stopped spilling out of the partially opened top, I poured this slightly hazy orange brew with its huge white head. It had an aroma of Belgian yeast and some mild hops. The flavor has good hops character along with the sweet light malt. The body is light and lively on the palate and the finish is dry.

LinusStick (2879) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2008
A nice Belgian pale. Aroma was so so. Pale malt with a little staleness to it. Pour was a beautiful burnt gold with a nice pillowy near tan head with tons of little bubbles rising and sticking to the bottom of the glass. Taste was a little one dimensional and weak. Pale malt with just a hint of light fruits. The big thing here is the carbonation. This carbonation bites the top of the mouth like a tiger biting into its prey. That great mouthfeel makes this average beer slightly above average.

On tap at WA Frost’s. Pours a nice dark gold. No head on it, but a solid malty aroma. Flavor is semi-sweet with a nice touch of yeast and spice. I enjoyed drinking a few of these!

Ratman197 (10080) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bomber poured a lightly hazy orange with a large lasting ivory head. Aromas of spice, yeast, floral notes, light cherry and a hint of honey. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of spice, honey and light fruittiness with a smooth lightly dry bittersweet finish.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2008
22oz bottle: Clear amber pour with a whispy white cap. Spotted lacing that is weak at best. Flat, dirty nose that is dominated by stale caramel and earthy yeast. The aroma reminds me of grandma’s cellar if you know what I mean. Flabby carbonation and malt profile in the body create an unexciting experience. The yeast lends near to nothing here. The same can be said for the hops, which are mildly grassy and don’t really mesh with what malts are here. Not infected as the previous reviewer stated, just boring.

Ernest (6312) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2008
22oz bottle (a volcanic gusher). Head is initially huge, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of sour apple, bile, autumn leaves. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sour in the not-so-nice way...pretty clearly infected. Whether intentional or not, it’s an unpleasant variety of bacteria at work here.

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Pours amber with huge fluffy head. Smell is musty grain, honey, fruits, and a weird tartness. Flavor is honey, spicy yeast, slight fruitiness (apple), and finishes with a weird mustiness and sort of unpleasant after taste. Medium body. This is just ok for me.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Bottle: Pours a amber color with a medium size frothy white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of pear. Flavor is spicy with a mild finish. Refreshing and enjoyable!
