COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re two nations separated by a common language. They call it Bitter we call it Pale.Either way this marriage of British malt and American hops is just what a proper ale should be. We’de say its on the money but they’d call it Bang On.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 On draught at Gigantic 1/5/14. Amber color. Aroma is sweet corn malts. Taste is sweet corn, caramel, lightly bitter hops. Easy-drinking and well balanced. On 2/11/14, had five variations from five cask conditioned pins, each dry-hopped with and profiling a different hop: Brewer’s Gold, Summer, Sylva, experimental 527, and experimental 881. There are the sweet pineapple and KoolAid notes of 527, the tropical guava note of Summer, the mild Sylva, the light citrus of 881, and a mellow tea note of Brewer’s Gold. Prefer the 527 overall, with the Summer and 881 following close behind.

Crystal malt and English malt pop through beautifully. The hop character is mild yet delicious, and the overall taste is lager-ish bit with an ale finish. Pours a golden amber with an off-white head. Aroma of delicious hops and lager-like florals. Very well done. Fantabox

Reid (1878) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2013
22 oz bomber bought from Trader JOe in Salem. $4.99 Its a light amber clear coloured ale with a nice sized frothy slightly off white head. Mostly malty aromas but some lemon zest style hop aromas show. Pleasant Very balanced beer in style with the English style malts beating out ( just) the zestful American hops. Good mouth feel carbonated low and well for style very drinkable. Good unusual beer ( for the PNW)..enjoyed .

Lagerboy (1216) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear dirty orange copper, healthy off-white foam settles and fades. Malty aroma, caramel and citrus. Floral citric hop taste, toasty pale biscuity malt, some caramel, lightly bitter. Softer than average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. An enjoyable quaff. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Barnoloid (163) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
Picked this up from a local bottle shop, was intrigued by the effort to meld a British Bitter and American Pale Ale. This is as typically easy drinking as many English style pales. Thin to medium mouthfeel with a healthy, frothy head when poured into an imperial pint glass. This is not a beer that is going to get people excited on the forums but it does reflect exactly the style that Gigantic is aiming for. A solid, sessionable ale with a refined malt profile.

crossovert (7302) - Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2014
650ml bottle. Copper pour. Smell is toasted nuts, light resiny hops. Flavor is nice, herbs, cut grass, some alcohol twang. If this was 4.6 it woudl be a dream.
