Our pale ale is a perfect blend of whole leaf Chinook and Mount Hood hops and rich organic malts. A crisp, clean profile make this beer distinct.

This is my favorite local Asheville Pale Ale, and Pisgah is quickly becoming my favorite brewery. Their variety of beers is amazing.

Enjoyed this fine craft brew on tap in Asheville. Poured a slightly hazy orange copper, with a steady layer of white foamy head, overall a very appealing display. Starts off a bit mild in the flavor but builds to a slightly resiny hop bitterness. Most interesting however is the surprisingly malty aspect to this otherwise standard pale ale. Lots of fresh grain and caramel malt. Rounded out with a smooth medium bodied texture. An excellent example of the style! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC. Lightly hazy amber with an an off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted grain and light fruit. Taste of caramel, mild floral hops, grain, toast, dank forest duff, citrus and light fruit. The flavors work well together to make this a right decent APA. Medium body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shaker pint draft at Intermezzo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a ½ inch light tan head. The aroma is orange and grapefruit citrus, a bit of citrus peel and toasted grain malt. The taste is a nice blend of the softly bitter citrus and the toasted cracker malt. Clean and fresh. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a dry mildly bitter finish. Nice Pale Ale.

Draft pint at Luella’s Bar-B-Que in Asheville, NC; hazy copper-amber color with very light tan head. Aroma notes of citrus/floral hops, some tropical/grapefruit notes with toasty malt balance. Taste adds grass bitterness, some citrus zest, faint dry fruits and grainy malt sweetness. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry, tad crisp with some lingering fruity/citrus finish. Overall pretty nice APA, went well with my BBQ platter.

Pisgah Pale Ale is a richer copper colored ale that is a bit hazy. Nose is very faint citrus and grass. The taste is slightly sweet malt with a bit of grass flavor. Body is a bit thin. Overall very drinkable but somewhat unremarkable.
