COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Flagship beer brewed for the true beer lover! Table Rock Pale Ale is brewed using the finest two row barley malts, with generous amounts of crystal and caramel malts yielding a dseep copper color and rich malt body. Table Rock is dominated by American Cascade hops, averaging a whopping 3 grams of hops per pint! Cascade hops produce a lively floral aroma and taste. Try one and see why this is our most popular brew, “once you go Pale, you don’t go back”!

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 NIce biscuity malt profile with a biting hop zing on the very end. Poured a nice deep amber with a slight haze. Aroma shows earthy hop with a slight grapefruit overtone. Sharp long bitter finish. A good, if somewhat understated, IPA. Good for new IPA drinkers.

emacgee (4147) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Sampled at the Blues and brews Festival. Pours a dark reddish copper amber. The nose is decent, sweet, some grapefruit peel. Flavor tastes like its old. Perhaps an old keg made it to the festival, not sure. Lightly bitter, earthy, feels like its english. Decent mouthfeel.

hoppy aroma. Mostly grapefruit. Flavor is malt with hops present throughout. Good beer. Rating from phone so breif.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Mini Keg courtesy of Degarth. Pours crystal clear light copper with mildly frothy tan head and some cobweb lacing. Nice malty aroma with layers of bread and butter, light roasted malts and some vague hoppiness. The taste is just as malty as the nose with up front roasty caramel and crystal malts. It quickly moves into the butterscotch and buttered bread arena as pine and citrus hop bitterness well up and make a solid appearance. Very tasty.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Mini-keg from Degarth. This beer is a bit dry with some tart and sweetness; carbonation is biting and there’s a bit of sourness in the finish. Aroma has a touch of honey. Not bad, but rather bland.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Mini-keg, courtesy Degarth. Pours a copper color, with a watery white head and lots of lacing. Caramel maltiness in the aroma, with some distant fruit esters. Acidic maltiness in the flavor, with some slight caramel and toffee. Sharp, biting acidity limits the drinkability. If not for that, would would be a great sessioner.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Mini Keg courtesy Degarth. Pours a clear copper with a large off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of floral and earthy hops with notes of biscuits, sweet malt, and caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a clear amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral sour citrus aroma. Medium body with slick texture. Heavy bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout drinkable brew.
