COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a classic English Bitter style using just UK pale malt with a touch of crystal. For the hops, we used Golding for bittering and a little flavor, but also added a touch of New Zealand Motueka hops for flavor and aroma. The real character is in the water; for which we closely matched the profile of North Yorkshire area of England. Out of all the areas on the UK, this was Brewmaster bobís favorite water.

OG: 1.036, IBU: 26, ABV: 3.7%

1/12/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Deep orange pour with a small khaki head. Biscuity aroma, toasty, some butter and caramel, lightly fruity. Savory butter flavor, salty in a way, definitely buttery, toasty, nutty, biscuity, lingering butterscotch. Eh. Sorry, Ding.

Whoa, didnít know this beer was such low alcohol. Draft at Sweetgrass Dairy. Clear light brown pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma of toffee, bready malts with a noble hop characteristics, floral and spicy. Light bodied in flavor with medium malts and a bitter hops in the finish. Pretty tasty and true to style. Nice stuff.

Cask to taster. Looks solid; golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes slightly bitter and a little buttery with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Not my thing.

Here it is, the beer named for former BA member Ding. I have no idea how this will be. I have no idea what will happen. There will be a reckoning. Letís do it.

Appearance: Hazed, orange-yellow body with an inch of whitish foam. Good lacing.

Smell: Modest maltiness, handing out polite hints of bread, biscuit, unsalted saltines. Razor thin sweetish hint of toffee candy. Mild hops with a bit of floral, subtle citrus fruits.

Taste: Lightly bready, lightly crackery malts. Yes, and a bit biscuity, too. Hint of toffee sweetness. Floral, gently fruity hops with a reasonably light bitterness. Low sweetness to the lightly malty, soft-textured finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A nice brew thatís as touching as a Cal Ripkin story.

Sampler draft pours a golden amber color. Aromas so light malt, light hops. Very simple beer, but good for what it is.

Westmeister (1728) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft sampling. Dark clear gold pour. This was a very nice and approachable beer as one would expect with the style and the first recommended beer out of the flight. Some grains, light caramel, crisp finish. Not much to the brew other than light bodied, light flavor, light drinker.

On tap at the pub. Pours a murky orange ish brown. As to be expected a very drinkable beer with a spicey bitter finish. Decent flavor with not a ton of body. Donít get to try this style too often but this is one I would definitely go back to. Light caramel and toffee flavor working throughout.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Pleasantly surprised by this one, as I tried it in a flight. Light and pleasant-tasting, perfect beer for patio day drinking

On tap in a flight at the Brewpub. Gold color, with a medium, beige head and perfect lacing. Caramel and butterscotch aromas up front, with some cereals and light grains and minerals. Sweet and mildly bitter flavor. Medium body, creamy feel, grainy, with a clean finish. Overall, this is a delicious, very drinkable, and smooth bitter. Not very complex or strong, but all the better for it.
