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”!

Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with white head that laced the glass. Citrusy hop nose. Tangy and bitter with a hoppy grapefruit flavor. Very good IPA.

draught. Pours a copper shade with a firm, white head atop. The aroma is typical PA: pine, citrus, a little caramel. Flavor is more the same. It definitely satisfied my craving for a good pale ale. I think it resembles an APA a little more than an IPA. The malts could’ve been slightly more rounded for a more savory experience and there were slight buttery off-flavors, but all in all, it was a refreshing, hoppy, sweet brew.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Copper orange color with a small white head. Floral hop aroma with notes of citrus in the background. Lots of crisp grapefruit bitterness combined with a touch of sweet malts. Good representation of this style.

GABF. Pours gold. Aroma is sweet malt. Flavor is like a weak IPA. Palate coats. Good effort.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Draught. Transluscent golden color with small, white head. The aroma is spice, hops, and something that reminds me of cream-cheese. Flavor is mostly creamy hops along with raw barley, sour zest, and a touch of saltiness. There is a sharp bite up front and it smooths out toward the finish. I don’t like this as much as everyone else seems to. There are much better PAs and IPAs out there. It’s certainly still drinkable, though.

chronictonic (471) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Single hop (Cascade) IPA. In tallikng to the bartender, most likely also single 2 row malt - good. Simple yet flavorful. Typical Cascade aromas of pine and some grapefruit. Good use of hops for bittering, aroma and hop flavor - nicely balanced. Slightly perfumy finish.

draft. Union Jack’s. Orange-amber, smallish white head, laced well. bready small tasting malt with a big piney, citrus, hop character. Nothing offensive...a good IPA.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with orange highlights and a dense off-white head. Aroma of nice high alpha-acid hops with some grapefruit tartness and a plentiful malt background. Medium-bodied; Good strong hoppiness in the taste with a strong alcohol kick with a strong malt backbone. Aftertaste shows the hop character lasting long with a good hop bitterness. Malt & alcoholic character goes a long was as well in extending the taste. Overall, a nice beer to be able to sample and a fine example of an APA! I sampled this pint on draught at the Beer Sellar in Knoxville, Tennessee on 02-October-2004.
