On tap at the Bier Garden in Asheville. Bright golden with lots of fruits in the aroma and flavor - oranges and maybe some peach or really, really mild melon; it was hard to pinpoint. A nice medium-bodied beer that I’d probably drink again.

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.

Keg at Mamacitas, Asheville, 17/02/15.
Hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering.
Nose is pale malt, melon, light orange, a little thin overall.
Taste comprises light citric peel, melon, light bread, grassy tones.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so - a pretty muted affair lacking hops and indeed direction!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Cúrate, 1/3/15
Aroma: It has some citrus/grapefruit, a little orange, caramel, and some toast/grainy malts
Appearance: It pours a hazy amber-golden color with a small off-white-to-beige colored head
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines as the nose, a little sweet, with a nice, clean bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leans a hint light, with a pretty good drinkability to it
I enjoyed this one overall. It is nothing too amazing, but it is pretty good. Definitely something I could see drinking regularly if it’s one of few around, but not something I’d seek out on a more in depth menu.
