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.

Beautiful balance in nose between wild grape, malt and all around Belgique. Assertive bitterness balanced by a very full and round body which sets it above many other American/Belgian ales which can be overly lean.

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.

10/6/2013. Sampled at the VA Hop Fest. Pours cloudy light amber with a white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, malt, Belgian yeast. Light caramel flavors with citrus, yeast and malt showing through. Finishes strong with hops. Great balance all the way and a very nice way to start off a new brewery. Looking forward to more from this brewer.

Location: Draft at Lickinghole Creek, 5/3/14

Aroma: The aroma has a nice mix of Belgian yeast and pine/resin hops, tropical notes too
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange-red color with a thick beige head and good lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, yeast/spice pairs well with the plus hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean, easy drinking feel, and a clean, dry finish
Overall Impression: I’ll resist the urge to comment on the ridiculousness of the name. Anyway, I thought this was a very nice beer. Probably my favorite thing I tried on our trip there (waaaaayyyyy out in Goochland). Style-wise, it’s nearest to a Belgian-style Pale Ale or IPA, even if that isn’t exactly where they classified it.

Poured from a tap. This is a good beer. Decent head, but outstanding lacing. Cloudy dark orange. Great citrus aroma and taste. Very creamy.

cloudy amber color; floral hop aroma; a good deal of bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor with a medium bodied malt base and a touch of fruity Belgian yeast; nice, bitter, hoppy finish; a very enjoyable beer

Thanks Grant. One of the better belgian pales I’ve had in recent memory. Yeasty esters and and citrus hops smell beneath the large foamy head. Taste is nice citrus, belgian yeast with a semi dry finish. Could drink quite a bit of this.

Apricot and pit fruit, on the hops and a dose of interesting, slightly spicy yeast. A good food beer and a light interpretation of belgian equivalents.

Appearance- hazy, opaque, honey, orange, amber. Nice big foamy bone white head that remained for a good while. Superb lacing. Smell- clean, spice, clove, malt, Belgian yeast aroma. Taste- bitter, spicy, (slight) sour citrus bite. Tangy. Mouthfeel- creamy, medium body, well balanced. Overall- an excellent beer! A very good U.S. version of a Belgian pale. Highly recommend. Cheers!
