COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship pale is a classic British pale ale with a nod to the legendary beers of Burton-on-Trent. Copper-colored, dry, clean and crisp with lots of late hope taste in an appetizing complex with ale fruitiness from imported Hampshire yeast.
Ingredients: Two row English malt (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt Hood, Tettnang and Fuggle Hops.

The appearance was a dark amber with a lighter foam and a small lacing around the edges. It had a darker malty smell. The taste had a slight malt along with a slight sweetness, slightly mild and balanced. The palate was about a medium feel. It had a good smoothness to it. Overall, this was a good beer that I might come back to.

12 oz bottle. Pint shows a nearly clear amber, very thin white head no retention. Nose is flowery hops, and weak bready notes. Flavor is weak, with biscuit malt coming through with a rather generic hop bitterness. Finish lingers on to develop into a metallic note. No date code but it was next to other fresh Geary’s products. Honestly if you are going to buy a Geary’s brew, walk past this and grab the Hampshire Special. This was like a water down version of that English Strong Ale.

smells like any normal beer, pours a darker color than most pale ales with a solid, thick head. taste starts sweet and gradually builds toward a decent amount of hops. finishes clean.

GBBF. Light haze on this amber beer, residual white head. Light dry palate with a sting from the fine carbonation. Toffee caramel malts. Slightly sour red fruits with some fresh hop sting. Finishes dry with red berry fruits coming to the fore and a trace of bubblegum ester.

From the bottle: Very light on everything including taste. Everything was muted and didn’t even taste like a pale ale.

Clear, dark, amber with a short, off-white head. Scent is bready, toffee. Taste is dry and hoppy. Nice mild bitterness... quite enjoyable

Bottle. Very mild light toffee malt aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Toffee malt flavor with a mild bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours transparent amber. Stinky dark roasted malt, with not nearly enough hops to counter. Something like a flavorful macro. Not for me.

Simple aroma and active brown pour leads to a basic but satisfying taste and decent mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
