A reformulation of the Willoughby Brewing Company Pale Ale. This is a new recipe from the original Lost Nation Pale Ale.

Our take on the American Pale Ale style, this light amber ale has a strong malt backbone with just enough bitterness to provide a clean, crisp finish. Brewed with traditional English malts and American hops, this versatile style pairs well with all types of food and cheeses.

A: Reddish/Llightly Briwn Hue, Passes Through Some Light, Thick White Head, Good Lacing S: Citrus, Mild Resin, Mild Malts T: Piney, Resin, Malty Finish M: Good Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Dry, Bitter Overall, a really good Pale Ale that teeters on the IPA boundaries but maintains a good balance with the malt flavors on the back end.

Pint on tap at the Pigskin in Athens, OH during Ohio Brew Week. Clear amber color. Big foamy off-white head. Good lace. Good light crisp carbonation, dry texture. Awesome dry hoppiness - pine, some citrus. Nice bitterness, good zestiness. Really good pale ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium caramel color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint grapefruit, lemon, floral hops and a was a bit dry. The flavor was a bit harsh and was semi sweet with moderate notes of grapefruit and lemon and a touch of pine. The finish was medium length rough fruity hops. Medium body. Decent.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a fairly bitter hops character that has some citrus and pine notes. Notes of malt in the background as well. The finish is hoppy with a short mildly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nephilium (1307) - Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2011
(Sampled from a growler) A nice hoppy aroma starts this beer off, which pours a clear amber, with a nice white head, and visible carbonation. Crisp clean hop flavor, but not too much there on the bittering side. Light on the palate. This is a decent beer, very approachable, but not the hop smack in the face Im looking for with an APA.
