A traditional premium style lager with a nice bready malt base and clean profile with a bit of lemoniness to the hop. Pours a very pretty deep golden with a strong fluffy white head. On tap as a guest at Pig Pounder.

A mildly hopped lager that doesn't overshadow the traditional lager elements. Pretty good.

Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with a quickly fading white head, rather still, not much bubble action. Aroma has an olive oil accent, some lemon accents. Flavor has a bit of a grainy essence, light nuttiness, some mineral water. Overall, somewhat bland. Mouthfeel is rather dry. Not a highlight of my North Carolina haul.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grainy malts and some grassy hops The taste was grainy, with toasted malts, grass and herbal hops. Decent.

Pours a nice amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is crisp, malty and a bit fruity, typical but inviting. Flavor is malty with an underpinning of pear and a hint of apple. Texture is average but OK. This could be a good gateway beer to wean people off industrial swill.

Had on tap at Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain. Just meh. Color and taste of straw, predominantly. Pretty high carbonation. Sort of insipid flavor wise- bready, doughy, corn, sweet. Was cold enough that one could call it refreshing- might work in a pinch on a hot summer afternoon.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear dirty light amber, thin head cover, narrow bands of lace. Taste reminds me of the big guys - malt and adjuncts that don’t extend flavor past the palate, fizz for balance, only this one at least provides a light bitter as the finish fades. Overall, weak.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with minimal ring of white head. Aroma is bready grain and lager esters, taste follows. Clean and easy, slightly under carbonated, but a nice lager.
