COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian beer meets American and New Zealand Hops, they live happily ever after. Named after the Magic Beaver pond on the farm’s property, LCCB’s Pale Ale is a combination of Belgian Pilsner Malt, authentic Belgian yeast and and American and New Zealand hops. Delicious and easy to drink.

Bottle. What a name... poured a very cloudy, almost muddy yellow-orange color with a foamy white head. Aroma was light citrus notes, orange, grain notes and a touch of yeast. Flavor was sweet malts, grains, earthy hops. Alright.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Murky dark amber with a short tan head. Nutty and earthy hops with soft floral hops, tea leaves and yeast in the aroma. Taste is toasted malt, light caramel, floral hops, grassy notes, earthy hops, light nuttiness, yeast and citrus. Soft spice through the body as well. Medium bodied with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more earthy notes, light nuttiness, soft caramel, toasted malt, light grass, grains, floral hops, citrus, yeast and light spicy notes.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Dark bronze pour, the head a bit thin. There’s a bit of a ester-laden twitch in the aroma, but it takes some effort to discern it. This drinks with a metallic feel up front. There’s a follow-on sense of grassy herbs, a bit of floral hop, and a final swirl of mild yeast. I’d prefer a bit more heft to the beer, but this is pleasantly drinkable. (#5470, 3/19/2014)

Draft at the brewery, 11/15/13. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, stone fruits, earthy notes. The taste is citrus and earthy hops, pale malts. Medium bodied.

obguthr (3921) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Apricot and coriander nose, candi accent. Cloudy ochre, medium firm yellow head, good lacing. Fruitiness is more subtle and drier on the palate, thankfully. Maltier and spicier, but in just the right proportions. Bitter twig finish. Fantastic balance. Body is thin, alcohol very well concealed. Hoppy, but not to excess and not in the usual way. Quite nice.

Bottle. Good balance between Belgian yeast and American hops. Tasty but rather indistinct.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Medium copper, slight haze, slight head that faded quickly. Aroma is fruity with a bit of a medicinal hop note. Flavor is caramel accented malts, fruity Belgian yeast esters, and a medicinal hop finish. Lingering bitterness. Not bad, but didn’t really do it for me either.

RABinCO (1369) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle poured into a nonic pint. Hazy golden amber pour, no head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and bubblegum. Taste is caramel malt, bubblegum, orange zest. Drinkable, but not great.

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Bottle pours a cloudy orange amber with ring of white head. nose is faint orange peel and bready yeast. Flavor is sweet malty up front with a tangy orange pith on the finish. A little flat, and has a bitter, earthy finish. It’s almost like they tried to get too much of the oils out of the hops. really not that good. But it’s drinkable. And it’s a first attempt.

Keg @ Lickinghole Creek. The pour’s medium amber with a small white head. The nose is spicy Belgian yeast. Honeyed pear, white grape. White bread. The taste is moderately bitter, sweet. More white grape. Sweet honey, caramel. Light sherbet. The finish is somewhat acidic, dirty. Shag tobacco. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, smells promising, tastes less complete.
