2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
