COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tuckerman Brewing Co.’s flagship beer. Our interpretation of an American style Pale Ale, it is brewed using English and Belgian specialty malts and four different domestic whole hops. It is dry hopped and bottle conditioned, creating a beer with a strong malt character and a floral yet spicy hop quality. Tuckerman Pale Ale will be available year round. Currently, it is our introductory beer and is our only brew available.

Lightly hazy pour, white head. Stale malts, spent hops, butter, breast flavors. Not so great.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
On tap at the Loon on the Mountain Hotel in Lincoln, NH. Positive malty aroma, some breadiness, little bit of floral notes. Smooth drinker, initial malted flavors, ovaltine? Before we get into the dry hopped goodness. Nicely balanced ale and very sessionable, I didn’t feel the need to try anything else on tap this evening.

12oz bottle into a pint. This is one sessionable pale ale. It doesnt really have the hop presence I would expect from this remote NH town nor the headiness of a northeast microbrew. Rather bland and unfullfilling for a pale ale. color is a dark and musky brown orange. Taste is flat hops, countered by weak malts and average citrus. this is an average beer. not horrible, quite easy to drink, but still lacking the greatness to excel it over the edge. Head is nice and giant when poured, then shrinks down to islands over the murky brown sludge water. Ok pale ale here.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On draft at Portsmouth Brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, citrus, and earthy hops. Flavor is similar with malt up front followed by earthy, grassy hops. Light to medium in body and a nice pale overall.

Tap at Strange Brew in Manchester. Clear light gold pour with a white head. Buttery and earthy, mild grass hops. Not a standout.

Part of Sampler at Portsmouth Brewing with Katie. English maltiness completely dominates.

Old sour malt aroma. Clear golden color with a small white head. Flavor of old malt bitterness in the beginning with a light sweet finish.

ReggieDunlap (3071) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a thin wispy white head. Aroma is malty with light caramel. Flavor follows suit...subtle bitterness but i need more hops! Mouthfeel is light...too thin...and the finish is mildly bitter.

rejtable (1297) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Really nice quaffer. Pours medium copper with foamy head and lots of lacing. Up front some caramel with a cereal, like Cheerios, backing. Great medium mouthfeel. Nice!

johnnnniee (2306) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours a clear golden amber with a huge bubbly off white head that slowly recedes and leaves a moderate amount of lace. Smells of earthy and floral hops, biscuity almost pilsner like malt aroma, with hints of citrus. Taste follow the nose fairly well, biscuity almost honey sweet malt with earthy citrus and floral hops to counter. Medium thin body with a bready sweet watery mouthfeel and a moderate to high level of carbonation. This is a really nice pale ale for 1998, but kind of pedestrian by today’s standards. Well made, nothing objectionable, but nothing really exciting here either. Kudos for bottle conditioning though!
