COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A contemporary pale ale, showcasing American malts and hop varieties. An assertive but not overpowering ale for the American Pale Ale drinker. In the 1970’s American Craft-Brewers created the microbrewery revolution, and it was “American Pale Ale” with it aggressive use of hops and creative grain bill that lead the charge.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
12 oz bottle (no date but purchased yesterday) served in a lager glass. Pours apricot-amber in color, hazy and with plenty of sediment in suspension. It looks much better at the top where it is crowned by a tall, creamy head that has excellent retention and leaves the glass well coated with lacing. Aroma: too musty and earthy, although some of this no doubt comes from the hops. Flavor: better than the nose, with a mildly bitter balance although slightly sweeter than usual for this style. Fruity with sweet and bready grains underneath. Feel: soft and smooth with medium carbonation. O: fresh? doubtful .. will try to re-visit.

A bit light, skunky, dry. Some crispness with a decent hops finish. Some earthiness, grass, nutty malt, but missing something.

July 2010 from bottle. A nice pale ale without being impressive. Just a middle of the road ale that does serve a purpose. Good as an everyday beer.
