Brewed with 6 row & Munich malt and a small amount of chocolate malt to make An Extra Special Bitter in the British style that is a darker than your normal pale ale. Whole flower cascade hops used for bittering and aroma.

Draft at the source. Cloudy deep amber brown color, massive cream colored head. Aroma of earthy bread dough. Taste is bready, biscuit dough, but also a bit medicinal. Not my favorite of the day.

Poured a somewhat opaque dark amber to brown in the glass. Large head that overflowed the glass and left rich lacing all the way down. Subtle hint of biscuity malt and a slight bitter hops in the nose. Ample carbonation at first, though it all settled down after a few sips. Initial flavor was fresh toasted malt, a hint of Belgian-like sour that faded quickly into a rich, bitter hops flavor (Saaz? Fuggles?). Definitly no "citrus" or "floral" flavors here. Overall, similar but not mild like an English bitter and not straightforward "sour" like some Belgians; rather a very unique earthy and somewhat spicy hops profile that, while difficult to put my finger on it, was quite pleasant and drinkable. Best of all, with hops grown on a local farm and brewed just a few minutes from my house, it was downright fresh tasting, drinkable and refreshing.

Ok I do not mean to be so critical about this beer because it’s a local one and I want to support. But what the hell am I drinking right now I am so confusion on the color the taste the head Omg. I never had a pale ale thats so sour and tart it looks like am drinking a stout. The head that this beer makes is like someone put dish detergent in the dish washer. I gave a 3 for that palate because I can not get the yeast out my mouth. Also I gave a 2 on the appearance because it is a nice color.
