As a part of the annual Cleveland Beer Week celebration, we brewed this Pale Ale along with 13 other local brewers with one exception. Each brewer had to select a random hop variety out of a hat. Our hop is called Aramis and is grown in France. Itís a brand new hop variety that lends a delicate herbal, lemongrass, green tea flavor and aroma to this pale ale.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, and stinky/sweaty hops. Flavor is sweet like orange gummi candies with citrus tang, not so much bitterness. Hmm this is an odd pale ale, too sweet. 7/4/6/3/14 (3.4/5)

This isnít the worst Willoughby release but it doesnít not spark the excitement that some other do. Overall it was a fine experiment. Hopefully the tap list will rotate though; itís been a while since anything new or fresh appeared. Perhaps Iíve just finally exhausted most of their offerings.

Aroma / Appearance - A coppery bronze body was par for the course. Thin white head bobbed on top like pieces of surf. Canned oranges, cut grass clippings, and a mild bitterness chew at the senses.

Flavor / Palate - Citrus is the main focal point. A mild bitterness tickles the back of the throat. It begins to grow with later sips. Even by the end though it is kind of predictable. At 6.5% it could have more punch. Iíd drink this again but only because the current taps are slim pickings.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a bright copper color with a small white head that faded and left some lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel, grapefruit and lemon. The flavor was sweet caramel, tart ripe grapefruit and lemon. The finish was long and turned a bit dry though staying tart. Medium body. Ok.
