COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quickly becoming one of our most popular brews. Olde Towne Pale Ale is a delight to all the senses. Crafting this style of ale requires the use of three specialty malts which provides a rich, full-bodied flavor. This maltiness is carefully balanced by the incorporation of "Cascade" and imported English hops ealy in the boil. This combination of malts and hops creates a complex Pale Ale with a wonderful finish. Beer lovers know that aroma, flavor and the finish are crucial to great pale ale. Olde Towne Pale Ale strives to this to you.

My first swig and thought to myself - "the beer went bad on me!". Regardless I keep drinking and donít think it went bad but not reallty sure. It has a murkey, sorta thick look and texture. Tastes bubbly and salty. Quite odd. Itís not terrible but I think Iíll pass on a 2nd bottle.

12oz bottle. Clear golden-copper in color with a one-finger white head that leaves a film. The aroma is strange. Nutty with some sweet malt and mild hop notes. The flavor is like a nut brown pale ale. Nuts, caramel, and mild hop resins. Weird to say the least. Medium body with average carbonation. Not good overall. Hopefully freeing the hops with help Alabama make better beers than this.

12 oz from Spirits in Tuscaloosa. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is lots of malt with a twinge of honey and a bit of hops. Flavor is the same- lots of malt and just a few hops mixed in. Sweet and malty with a hint of hops in this light to medium-bodied APA.

From a bottle into a lager glass. Received in a trade with brentfeesh. Thank you, sir. Appearance is a translucent amber with a thick, fluffy beige head. Aroma is made up of hops, lemongrass, and grain. Taste is sweet up front, with some grapefruit coming through and other citrus fruits coming through about the middle of the drink. It finishes with a calm hop profile that is not very bitter. This beer would be great to drink several of, itís just too bad I am not able to do so.

Thanks to Kirkpjr for this long time want. An Alabama beer brewed in Alabama. I pored the bottle into my Sam Adams glass and was greeted with a two finger off white head sitting on top of a golden orange body. My first thought on the aroma was lemon so I go with that. I liked the flavor It is great to see a Pale that doesnít try to be an IPA this one was balanced out just right and a pleasure to drink. It had a medium body with ample carbonation. It drank extremely well and I was left wanting for more. I would be proud to call this my local Pale ale great job Olde Towne

12oz bottle thanks to drowland! Pours a hazy orange with a white head and lacing through out the glass, the aroma is hoppy and the taste has a nice touch of citrus mixed in with the hops, pretty good.

From the Bottle at Chris Oís pre GBBF tasting, Kensal Rise 31/07/2010 Hoppy aroma. Amber coloured and a little sweet on the palate. Hoppy with a hint of dryness and bitterness in a malt finish.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2010
8/18/10. 12oz bottle. Clear amber, almost orange, pour with a big fluffy off-white head that lasts. Mild bready aroma with hints of citrus. The flavor is sweet caramel malts and a hint of citrus hop with a lingering hint of chocolate. Not bad.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home thanks to Amy, via Chris.
Very slightly hazy pale amber with a rapidly vanishing white head that settles to a rim of bubbles. Bready malt aroma with some faint citric hops and a burnt note. Similar flavour really. Very little happening. Too much bittering hops and not enough for flavour. The malt is a little too clear and the bitterness seems to come from nowhere. Rather basic but certainly drinkable.

Thanks to FreeThyHops for sending me this beer as an extra. This is my first beer from Alabama. The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, pine, brown sugar and iced tea. The flavor is toffee, tea, earthy hops and some orange citrus notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
