Pearly is an unapologetic session beer in the middle to light range of traditional English bitters. Bitters are the heart and soul of English brewing, coaxing complexity, subtlety and nuance out of well-balanced, low-gravity ales. Hops, malt and our English yeast marry wonderfully in one of our most drinkable ales. If it’s available on cask, try it!

Amber colored pour with a white head. Some citrus peel hops, a bit of floral hops, and a lot of bready malt. A little bit of toast and some yeast notes. The flavor is sweet from the bread an toasted malt notes. A little bit of biscuit, some floral hops, and a nice bit of citrus peel and zest.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Cask at the brewpub, served at room temperature. Clear light orange color with a nice big bubbly domed cask head. Pleasant flowery hop aroma reminiscent of rose hips. Flavor was similar and supported by a biscuity malt backbone.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 7, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Dark gold with a white head. Has a great aroma of toasted malt. Mild flavor with a high level of gypsum salts.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2005
Pint poured at Magnolia’s Brewpub in San Francisco, a cloudy light orange with a medium head. Aroma is strong of citrus fruits. A tangy flavour, but served too cold.

PorterPounder (7303) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2005
On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Very plae, light golden pour, frothy white head. Slighlty worty aroma, but not very prominent. Falvor is very "gluey" and artifical. No real bitterness whatsoever, rather bland. Not the best from this bunch
