Basement Batch is is a traditional American-style Pale Ale. Much like our infamouse award-winning choc beer, it's handcrafted with only the finest ingredients. Starting with a base of American-grown 2-row malted barley we add liberal amounts of caramel and Victory malts to give Basement Batch a rich, almost nutty, malt backbone to complement the unique citrus character Cascade hops, which are the gold standard for this style. Like all of our choc beers, Basment Batch is "bottle conditioned," which means that it's fermented a second time while in the bottle. This long-established method of carbonating beer will leave a thin layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. So, pour slowly and carefully to maintain clarity,and enjoy!

Cloudy golden body with a small white head. Light body with barealy any roasted or caramelized malts flavour. Taste is basically citrus fruit skin in a watery potion. Oxidized despite its young age, a bit ferrrous. Something inappropriately powdery in there (yeast?). No bitterness. Not even a pale ale. Amateurish. Abasement Batch Pale Ale.

Bottle poured hazy rusty amber color with virtually no head. Notes of grapefruity hops and corny malts in the aroma. I too taste the aspirin or baking soda-like bitterness. Almost tastes like pennies. I appreciate the brewers’ efforts but I think they just missed the mark. I’m a Krebs fan.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and murky light amber color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel/toffee, faint hops? Taste is medicinal, aspirin, medium malt-caramel/toffee, yeast. OK carbonation. The aspirin seems to mean a problem in process somewhere. If their beer really is different than this, I would love to rate again. Although I emailed them 2 times in June and as yet have not gotten any reply.

Pours amber with large tan well lacing head. Nose is herbal hops and clean earth, pine, faint sweet malt. The flavor is initially balanced towards sweet, caramel malt, seguing into floral and herbal hops that end in a nice bitterness. Very suprising excellent offering from Pete’s Place

Bottle, decent aroma, of medium malts and light hops. Nice thick lasting head, good lacing. Nice carmel notes, with a bit of bitter hops but nothing overwhelming. Probably the best beer this brewery has produced to date. its a decent APA not as good as Red Seal but a good session beer no doubt.
