COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who arenít afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5į, 45 IBU

22oz. Great hoppy English style beer. Surprised ratings arenít a bit higher, but not much behind their IPA. Great brewery.

Mild, floral hop aroma and taste with clean and refreshing maltiness. Thoroughly enjoyable.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, darkened gold body topped with a medium-large, white, reasonably long-lasting head. Smell: Nicely pungent, aromatic hop nose smelling of fine floral, citrus fruit peelings, and dank herbaceousness with a minimal malt backing in the, er... back. Taste: Fairly soft pale malt base with only a snippet of ill-defined sweetness, then itís hop time: fresh floral tones, fresh-picked herbs, citrus pith, and, of course, the medium-high bitterness. If the malts started mild, you canít expect them to crash through the window like a SWAT team this late in the game. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: Thankfully, this isnít one of those mealy-mouthed, cinnamon-chapped ass pale ales you occasionally run it. While it is true Iíd normally prefer just a skosh more maltiness, itís only because many brewers, in the name of perceived haute brewing, skip the whole aroma and flavoring hop thing in lieu of focusing entirely on the bittering hops, leaving up with a caustic pint of bitterness, bile, and vengeance. Not so with Crosstown! While the malts are mild, at least the hops and subsequent bitterness arenít ghastly and gack-inducing and you get a nice range of hop flavors.

Draft at BikeBar. Aroma of grass, taste is similar. Decent body. Nice eample of a proper pale ale.

Pours a hazy amber with a large off white head. Nose is floral and citrus hops. Tastes just like it smells. Floral hops, lemon, grapefruit, pears, bread, and some crystal malts. Body is light, carbonation is medium to moderate. Surprisingly tasty and way under-rated!

improvjock (321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smooth with a hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish, but not overpowering. Just the way I like a good pale ale!

Parksy (123) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2010
From a bottle. Shared with Duffman. Very nice pale ale with a wonderful hoppy/bitter aftertaste that isnít overpowering or palate killing. Very drinkable beer.

pdx77 (1257) - Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2013
On draught at Hopworks Urban Brewery. Clear full golden color. Floral, citrus aroma. Taste is sweet, slightly tart citrus with a touch of light malt. Well-balanced and pleasant citrus aftertaste.

boFNjackson (4110) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle... Poured a vibrant orange with a nice white head. Hops on the nose with a little bit of cracker-like malt. Refreshingly crisp and well-carbonated palate. Floral hops up front with a citrus fruit sweetness before the malted balance in the finish.

22oz bottle. Aroma of honey caramels. a bit of citrus hops. flavor is a sharp, crisp bitterness alongside a caramel malt. Light citrus. So sessionable. Very worthy of my belly.
