Always a crowd pleaser, our version of the ever popular Pale Ale leans more towards an English Bitter than the everyday American Pale Ale. Earthy on the nose with a light floral background, this brew has a lingering caramel malt flavor and a splash of fresh citrus. The chosen yeast strain provides a distinctly European feel, but our hop profile remains uniquely American in delivering the expected flavor and aroma, as well as a characteristic bitter edge. It is hop-forward with a balance towards late hop additions and bitterness, yet this medium-bodied brew maintains an ample malt foundation on the way to a smooth, refreshing finish.

PorterPounder (7420) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Irving. TX - on tap - FM Smoke Hose. Dark orange pour, slightly hazy with an off-white frothy head, decent lacing. Aroma has a ripening vegetable quality to it, offset by a pleasant fruitiness. Flavor has some peach-like frutiness, just a hint of citrus bitterness and some ripening vegetables in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Good companion to the beer can chicken I had.

A pretty easy drinking beer from Peticolas. Pours a yellow/gold with white head. Floral, citrus, and earthy on the nose, followed onto the palate. Finishes with a nice compliment of caramel malt that is not overpowering.
