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!

10/21/10. 12oz bottle courtesy of Cavie. Hazy orange pour with a khaki head that sticks around nicely. Huge caramel aroma with hints of bitterness, but not much else. Sweet caramel malt backing with a bitter punch, but not much citrus or hop character going on. Finishes bitter, dry, and a bit herbal and metallic.

arminjewell (9256) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma is some grass, touch of malt with caramel, nuts, and a slightly yeasty character. Taste is some grassy hops, biscuit, caramel, and nutty sweet malt, and a spicy yeasty, dry bitter finish. Not bad.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle. Ruddy orange pour with a rocky foam top. The aroma is vaguely yeasty, but there’s little of that in the first quaff. Musty and lightly sour, this is still an easy-drinking and inoffensive beer. (#3980, 9/12/2010)

Of all the Krebs/Choc brews, this one is not only my favorite from them but also a great pale in general.
