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”!

Bottle. The pour was a hazy copper amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing but did have excellent spotty and clingy lacing. The aroma was of a straw malt, a strong herbal hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (over ripe grapefruit). The taste was bitter and acetic with a mild caramel note in the beginning with the finish being rather bitter, hoppy and pungent with the taste of over ripe fruit. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow allowing one to totally get the full effect of the hoppy citrus ending. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall an average Pale Ale with a twist, it is a brew that is just a tad bit on the harsh side of hoppy...

On tap at Olde Hickory. Pours an orange color with white head. Very grassy, hoppy, bitter flavors. Meh, I’ll pass on this.

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.

Leighton (9830) - 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.

Bomber. Wow.... Totally sub par for a pale. But I am impressed with this amount of hops with 5.1abv.

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 at Amos Howard’s. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a nice amount of lacing. Nice citrus hop notes on the nose which continue onto the tongue. Finishes crisp and clean. Solid example of style.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Orange-tinged golden ale, mostly clear. Bad label, slightly peppery, lightly fruity aroma. Mostly dry, tangy, not a hop bomb. Pretty malty, but not overly sweet. Thanks to LuckyDog for hauling this back from Caroline.
