COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

jcwattsrugger (11086) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2007
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.

brokensail (10996) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy golden color with a finger of so of white head. S: The nose is a bit disappointing (not that I had incredible expectations to begin with). Very mild aromas of citrus and floral hops with a slightly stronger malt presence. T: The flavor is a bit more impressive than the nose is. The same floral and citrus hop components are more pronounced here, with a mild bitterness. The caramel malt gives the beer some needed body. M: Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of body or aroma, both being in the middle of the scale. D: A decent enough pale ale. I would have liked a little more hop character, but there was a fair amount to make it a palatable APA.
