One of the first beers I brewed after moving out to California to begin my brewing education was a Pale Ale. This version is a true testament to the influences the Wild West had on my early brewing. My Pale Ale is loaded with US-grown Cascade, Crystal, and Columbus hops, so be sure to take a good sniff to enjoy their robust aromas before taking your first sip. Sensory Profile: An aromatic beer with notes of citrus, pine, a noticeable bitterness, and a touch of malty backbone to help balance it out. Food Pairing: Foods with a spicy kick are a great match, as the bitterness of the hops will help to cool the palate before your next bite. Mexican food and pizza are natural matches.

Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Appearance was honey red gold with creamy lasting off white 2 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are sweet pale malts, pine, citrus fruits, no alcohol present. Taste was slight sweet 2-row malt backbone with pine, lemon, grapefruit and orange and resin. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body, then a long piney, citrusy resinous finish. A classic sticky pale made in the east coast. Thx beer buddy.

Poured an amber color with quite a bit of foamy white head. Smells of malty biscuits with a little pine. Taste is pretty similar with a little more citrus. I like the bitterness in the beer. Feel is medium, decent carbonation. A solid pale ale.

Bottle from Bridgend Service Station. Murky amber body with a medium off-white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of autumn leaves, copper and digestive biscuit. Flavour of pear skin and cardboard with a sour finish. Thin to medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Light fizz. A weird, musty beer.
