Decent bitterness, cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Looks, smells, tastes like an understated IPA.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Tap at The Big Hunt in DC. Apparently not just available at Lil Frankie’s Restaurant. The pour is a hazy, glowing gold with a thin, creamy head. Sticky, sheety lace. Nose is a bit buttery and soapy. Taste follows suit with some higher alcohols causing instant headaches. Overall pretty heavy grainy, richer, with some heavy diacetyl and soap. Wasn’t a big fan.

On cask at Rattle N Hum when I went for their Cigar City event. Pours a hazy golden brown yellow with a thin white head. Big hop profile, earthy, vanilla. Had some hop sediment which freaked me out a little as I didn’t see it at first glance and had chunks of hop leaves in my teeth after my first sip. Smooth supple grapefruit bitter finish.

Cask at Rattle N Hum. Hazy pour with a nice thick sticky head. Very pale golden yellow. Lots of bright fresh citrusy hops. Very bright aroma over a soft lightly toasted malt base. Earthy and lightly resiny finish. Quite fresh and quite tasty. A really nice session beer.

Growler from St. James Beverage - nose of citrus and earthy hops, buttered bread and light honey - light, but still fairly creamy in the mouth - the anticipated sixpoint hop profile is there, but you want that in this beer - the hops are spicy and herbal - these are balanced by a light sweetness and notes of toast, and even a light nuttiness - a straightforward and tasty pale ale.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Cask. Pours a hazy golden body with a think white head. Hoppy citrus and grass y notes. Caramel malt with a light fruit aroma and some cracker malts. Finish is less vibrant with a mild bitterness and hint of citrus. Good.

LilBeerDoctor (3736) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Growler. Pours a clear deep orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of bready malts, honey, and some herbal notes (jasmine and other flowery notes). Flavor of sweet pale malts with wheaty/bready notes, honey, and floral hops in the finish. A chill, relaxing kind of beer. I’m not so in love with the herbal/flowery and honey notes. Decent APA. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

This is a pale ale made especially for his restuarant. So thats where I went to get it. Of course, it was served in a frosted pint glass (thanks?). Color is cloudy, dense orange, cannot see through the beer. Aroma is all hop - not over the top but pleasantly present. Taste is similar - get some creaminess (simcoe?). Finishes with a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is fine. Again, a fine beer but nothing special. Drinkable.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at, err, Lil’ Frankie’s. Go figure. This was surprisingly decent, super fresh, old school example of a pale ale. Surprising coming from 6p., they tend to hop the hell out of every beer they make, but this one is mild in the hop with much more of a malt spine. The aroma is minerally, with salad-like notes of lettuce and hearts of palm. Some fresh, mild hops. Clean, light body, with a solid malt backbone. Light, non-dominant hops in the finish, with a touch of bitterness. Easy drinking and accessible, perfect for the location and the crowd.

Tap at Lil Frankie’s: Pours a golden orange with an off white, dense lacing head. Citrusy hop nose- some cascade character. Some background sweet notes of pale malt. Light body with medium carbonation (perhaps a touch too carbonated). Flavor is a bit sweet- pale malts give off mild grainy notes with a sweet citrusy hop middle. Not much bittering hop character. Seem like most of the hops were thrown in late in the boil. Simple and a bit boring.
