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”!

Nice aroma--floral hop presence, with Cascade hop presence. Coppery, malty flavor, solid body, good finish. Easily the best beer of the brewery, and a fine effort from my own little hometown.

Really interesting beer. Feels almost like an IPA rather than an APA. Pours a darker golden color with hints of orange to it. Good level of hoppiness to it. Very light and easy to drink.

Bomber. Light citrus aroma. Must have mellowed in the bottle. Nice pale ale. Not to hoppy not to bitter. Somewhat sharp finish. Drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sampler at the brewery. This was a very good IPA. Had a slight west coast flavor and just the right amount of pale ale bitterness.

chronictonic (472) - 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.

on tap-pours a white head and amber color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops-some bitter, medium malt. OK carbonation.

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.

kbutler1 (1349) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a medium copper color with a slight white head. The aroma has a light citrus rind note with some florals. Medium/light mouthfeel. One of the more hoppier pales I have had before. Starts with a light caramel type flavors and then transitions into a hoppy resin citrus rind. Bitterness lingers on. No evidence of the alcohol.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Orangey Brown, with a thick white head. Piney, spicy aroma. Very earthy, resiney, piney flavor, and a sticky, mouth-coating finish. Very dirty, messy beer, and I like it. Nice effort from Olde Hickory.
