COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your average pale ale, this light to medium bodied, dry, unfiltered, unpasteurized ale is hopped with a single varietal. The Slovenian Styrian Golding hops are added throughout the boil with large doses towards the end plus dry hopping. The Styrian aromatics are paired with the Westmalle yeast with its spicy robust character, yielding a complex nose and palate. With North American 2-Row barley malt, a bit of high-dried “Munich-style”, a toasty “Biscuit” malt and a flavorful caramelized “Munich” malt, this “living” ale makes a savory meal enhancer or a fine contemplative pint.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of light fruits, apricot, pale malts. Flavor of pale malt, light charr, light fruits. Ok, kind of dull and simple. 6/4/6/3/12 (3.1/5)

22 oz. bottle. Slightly hazy amber color with a thin lasting head. Aroma has a mild earthy hint and light pine resin. The body is medium and has a drying feeling on the palate. The body of the beer is grain with the aforementioned earthy hint and lasting pine giving the bitterness. If these guys have any draft accounts, I’m sure it would fare pretty well.

Pale ale not. This ale is complex and full bodied . very flavorful. Nothing pale in its color. Very good.

Sampled @ Mass Brewers Fest @ Julio’s. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Malt, fruit and hops on the aroma. Nice balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish.

On tap at 29 Sudbury. Ordered this because I had never heard of it (and that’s enough for me), figured it was some other beer in disguise for marketing purposes and wasn’t expecting anything great. Surprised to find that it was pretty darn tasty, a solid pale ale with it’s own character. Not too sweet malt flavors combined with a nice subtle hop balance. Very drinkable.

Well dam. I bought this thinking it just some other small mass brewery putting out simple beers and expectations were low. But clear light amber with piney hop aroma. Plus belgium bubblegum light yeast element. Big fluggy head and a full mouth feel. Recommended fully enjoyable pale ale, must find on tap.

Burnt-red brown with medium tan head. Aroma caramel, malt, hay. Medium body. Flavor is a fair amount of malty sweetness but finishes with dry but not too bitter english-like hops. Not bad, something a little different.
