COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tavern Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale. It is a medium to full-bodied beer with a hoppy aroma. Tavern Ale is served unfiltered resulting in a hazy or cloudy appearance. It has a full malt finish with a well rounded bitterness. Tavern Ale is an American Pale Ale because of the large amounts of American hops which lends a distinct, almost citrusy flavor to the beer. Therefore, our Tavern Ales is quite different from the "spicy" or "herby" flavor of European hops.

Drake (8214) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a sampler missing the front label and with a bottle date of 12/23/11, despite being purchased from a store two days ago which I know hasn’t had it since 2011. Somebody dropped the ball here. Anyway, pours a hazy copper color with lots of particulate matter. Medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts and earthy hops. The taste is bitter vegetal hops, a bit of citrus, toasted malts. Medium bodied.
