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”!

(Brewgrass08) Soft off-white head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, grass/straw. Taste is medium sweet, pine/grapefruit, some bread. Soft light-medium body. Not what I’d think of as an IPA, my rating is to an APA (else I’d score it lower).

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, honey-gold with a creamy topping. Floral and piney hops on the nose, perhaps some ripe citrus. Light-medium sweet flavor, moderately dank with bitter pine, sticky citrus, earth, rind. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Resinous finish with lingering bitter grass and pine. Perhaps a touch overly bitter.

Tmoney99 (10576) - 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.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a slightly dark orange appearance with a white head. Floral, orange cleanser, soapy aroma. High bitterness and pretty high carbonation. Soapy hops. Citrus. Light caramel. Bitter finish. I wouldn’t want to get a pint of this.

22 ounce bottle from Bestway in Greenboro, NC. I also purchased on at Bruisin Ales. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. The aroma is very faint with notes of leafy hops and pale malts. Taste is leafy, citrus hops with a caramel backbone. Some lingering bitterness. Medium bodied.
