COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We use an English-style pale ale as a base beer and add a generous amount of Ohio harvested pawpaw for a great fruity aroma and a banana/mango like flavor. Nicely refreshing!
Available late spring.

Draft at West End Ciderhouse. Crazy name for this one. Thought my vision was blurry. Anyway, it pours a dull, hazed yellow gold with a small white ring for a head. Notes of sugar, wheat, cereal, straw, earth, and overripe - borderline rotten - pit fruits. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a spoiled fruit juice mouthfeel. Old batch, maybe? Or are paw paws that sensitive, that if anything isn’t perfect they’re just off? I don’t know, but I couldn’t finish this. Ratings indicate there’s a better beer here, so I look forward to reevaluating.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very cloudy orange brown with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, nondescript light fruits. Flavor of light fruits, mango, banana, grapefruit, apricot, strawberry (I’ve never had paw paw so these are the fruit notes I get). Light sweetness, not overdone, very interesting! 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

b3shine (5573) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; murky dark peach with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good! Loads of tropical fruit along with hops and a bit of sweetness. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Solid on the palate with a lighter, dryer mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

kermis (5413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, tropical fruit, papaya and pineapple. Flavour is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

MrHangover (2524) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a cloudy blonde beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is tropical fruits and floral hops. Papaya? Flavour is sweet, fruity and tropical. Pineapple, flowers. Sweet, short finish. Decent brew.

Tmoney99 (10809) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Draft sample. Poured hazy orange color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of medium duration. This sweet beer also met my expectations.

michcam8 (303) - Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2012
On tap at Oak Room in Athens, Ohio. Murky orange/yellow in color with a good amount of head and lacing. Aroma of a mellow fruit, along the lines of cantalope and mango. Taste is crisp and refreshing, with the fruit well balanced between hops and malts. Enjoyable summer brew that was one of the highlights during OBW.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2012
On draught at Barley’s Ale House #1. The beer is a slightly murky orange-yellow color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an island of foam in the middle. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and pale malts. Light body with a mildly tart fruity character along with notes of wheat and sweet malt. The finish is fruity and tangy with a slightly metallic hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2012
Growler brought back by a friend. Hazy amber pour with a medium white head. Malty nose with tropical fruit and grassy hop notes. Flavor starts with the tropical fruit and has an herbal, almost light fennel character before grassy hops come in and then a cereal malt finish ties it all up.

JStax (3074) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Appearance is a slightly hazy copper color with at nice white head of foam. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is mildly fruity and tangy with notes of tart pawpaw and a melange of other fruits. Taste is mildly sweet and bitter. The pale ale character is fairly well covered up by the pawpaw, but I find this beer nice anyhow. Refreshing beverage to say the least.
