12 ounce can
There are plenty of great breweries in Virginia. After trying this pale ale Iím not sure if Lickinghole is one of them. It doesnít have any major flaws but neither is it anything special either. If you need a benchmark then it makes as good a comparison as anything else.
Aroma / Appearance - The transparent bronze body glimmers under a fresh vanilla head. White wine, gentle hops, and soft cool malts enrich the air. The inviting nature does enough to garner respect but not much more.
Flavor / Palate - The bitterness of cotton candy soaked in tree sap bites at the mouth and tongue. Vinous flavors emerge seconds later. The finish then fades quickly and unremarkably. No weaknesses or strengths seem evident even at the very end that would make this a repeat purchase..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy orangish copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly hoppy with some doughy and slightly sweet caramel maltiness. The hoppiness isnít all that clean or distinct, theyíre muddied by the mixed message maltiness. The flavor of the hops arenít all that clean and clear either, thereís a moderate bitterness, but still too much maltiness in here. I wish this were a bit lighter bodied and more attenuated than it is. Medium bodied and clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, canít say Iíd recommend picking up this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. What a ridiculous name for a brewery and even worse name for a beer when combined with said brewery name. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Light Belgian aspect on the aroma, phenolics leaning towards plastic, light citrus, doughy. Bitter flavor, phenolics again, the Belgian part coming through, citrus, doughy, light caramel. Not awful.
