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.

Very, Very good hop character! I always drink this stuff when I’m visiting the White Mountains. I wish I could get this stuff in Boston.

Very unusual, IMO. Fluffy lightness to the hops, dry-hopped, yes, and substantially, but more subtle than is usually done. VERY airy beer, with huge bubbled head that doesn’t last too long. Citrus, but not of typical variety. Trap says melon, yeah, I can grok that. Defines floral without trying too hard, somehow. Others here are commenting on the malt character. Unfortunately, I’m not getting it like I would like; with the proper balance this would easily be my fav. APA ever. In the hops dept., this is tops, ’A numer one’. The polar opposite of Bell’s pale ale. Switching those two within a session would blow my mind. Lastly, this beer is what Geary’s pale ale (also from the NE) strives to be.

Pretty wicked stuff! It's exciting to find a pale ale by a small unknown brewery that can stand up to the best of them. Nice spicy hop flavor in the aroma, leading you to belive the hops will be overwhelming. Fortunuately they're not, and the beer itself is an exceptionally well balanced american style pale ale. In the same class as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and just as good.

Aroma on this beer is very interesting. Originally i think there was vanilla, but now it smells like burnt wood perhaps?? Less abrasively hoppy then Sierra Nevada, with a relatively low-key finish. A sure keeper.

Very floral, fruity undertones. Honey amber hue. White sticky head. Very firm malt backbone, yeast, medium bodied, crisp carbonation, fresh fruit, big strong bitter lingering finish, pine resin, flowers, herbs. Very nice.
