bomber from Charles Street Liquors; lock and load; pours light muddy orange with spotty thin white head; some honey, rye spice and dried flowers; almost a sweet, orangey type of flavor to it; dry malt with wheat, rye and saaz-y type hops; a little earthy too with light, wheaty texture; very drinkable and smooth with a nice light farmhouse feel; light orange, dry grains and wheat; dry oats and honey in the finish; pretty good stuff overall and I continue to be impressed by Pretty Things

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma of spicy yeast, with hints of hops and citrus notes. Flavor about the same. A thick beer, and it sort of has a buttery feeling. A pretty good beer.

Draft at American Craft in Brookline. They called it a "French Farmhouse Ale." Grains, hops, some bitterness, some sweetness. A friend ordered this and I had a taste. This is really just the impression that I got from a brief taste.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow brown with a brief white head. Nose is yeast, toffee and lemon pith. Medium body with a fizzy carb bite. Taste is oats, banana, lemon-lime, honey and clover. Finishes with bitter rye to balance. A creative composition of grains.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a dark, orange color with a small white fluffy head that recedes to a small ring. Light haze is left on the glass, not really lacing. Nose is heavy on bready yeast notes with a light sourdough and some fruity ester notes as well. Palate is fairly heavy on carbonation up front that stings the mouth, followed by a more syrupy note in the back of the mouth. Lots of sticky residue is felt on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Flavors are yeasty and bready, less fruit notes and more of a champagne kind of dryness. The mouth is just full of stickiness, dry patches, stinging tongue...this is a high quality battle the mouth is facing with this beer. This is a fun, adventurous, experience.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The siteís description is largely wrong. There is one Field Mouse from Pretty Things and itís a Belgian farmhouse, not an English Pale. Damn good, too. Cloudy amber, small head, very little lacing. Nose of yeast and assorted grains. Taste of, well, yeast, fresh bread, assorted grains, some sweetness, detectable rye and multi-grain complexity, some funk to balance the sweetness, and, i suspect a touch of English hops, just enough to justify thinking this might be an English pale. But itís not. The predominant yeast and hop notes are definitely from the other side of the channel. Did i mention that itís pretty good?

On tap. Really distinctively grainy flavor, like something youíd more likely find in a Belgian farmhouse ale. Just a tiny bit off dry with a fairly pronounced hop finish.

Pours pale gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Candi, bubblegum and rye aromas. Crisp with sweet cotton candy upfront turning to a dry, lasting rye, resin and yeast finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Great look here...hazy canary pour with big 3f white head. Nose is floral, rye malt, wheat, rock sugar, spice, and slight funk. Tastes floral and spicy, with earthy rock syrupy malt, some hopcitrus, some funk, and great complexity. A very nice beer from PT.

On tap at Cambridge Common, in Boston. Cloudy golden color with tall foamy head and good lace. Nice hop aroma. Hoppy bitter flavor with noticeable sweet malt. Quite balanced with nice lingering aftertaste.
