COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first beer and still our most popular, a great American Pale Ale with a pleasant hop finish. Over the Rail Pale Ale got its name when our 10,000 pound Brew House went "over the rail" of our deck as we tried to get it off of the crane and into the brewery.

HIGHB4LL (823) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2015
12 oz. can from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers slightly off-white head, golden straw color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: caramel, pine, resin, grapefruit. Palate: light body, sticky texture, soft to average carbonation, bitter finish, light watery middle. Taste: sweet caramel with light watery transition into sticky pine bitter and ending with huge grapefruit bitterness. Overall, palate is unpleasant, and bitterness is a bit over the top. Not for me.

Steve_0 (3268) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Pour is clear orange/amber with a big white head and great lacing. Weedy, grassy, lightly resinous, caramelly, bready, and orange peel in the aroma. Taste is grapefruit, snappy, crackers, sweet caramel, ganja, weedy, and somewhat toasty with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not a bad pale ale, but nothing special...at least it tastes fresh.
