This ale is as frisky as its namesake Cedric, patriarch of the St. Bernards who shared Biltmore House with the Vanderbilts. High quality grain and English variety hops give our full-bodied ale a delicate straw color with malt and fruit aromas. Less bitter than most pale ales, yet it still retains the characteristic lingering hop finish.

Personally I prefer Biltmore’s wines, but Cedric’s Pale was surprisingly good. Not too bitter, which is often the case with craft brews.

Bottle thanks to a nice lady. Light brown and clear. Very light malt nose. Flavor is a very weak brown ale-drinkable but not at all memorable. What to do with the other 5?

Golden orange with an off white ring of foam. Light malt aroma. No hops on the nose. Grain and cereal body. Not a great example.

Color is bronze. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel. Taste is balanced between bitter hops and strong malt. Mouthfeel is decent. Finishes with malt and even a bit of toffee. Decent. *4 oz pour in a flight at Biltmore ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle, Biltmore Tavern (5/19/15). Mild pale ale with noble beany hops. Light golden amber with thin head. Good taste but like pilsner malt/noble hops mix than a caramelly English pale ale.

Draft sample at Cedric’s Tavern at the Biltmore near Asheville, NC; clear darker amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of light citrus/fruity hops and malt sweetness. Taste adds more sweetness, light fruitiness and faint pine. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, clean with light citrus hop finish. Pretty hop light even for an English style, the light fruitiness is nice though. Easy drinking pale.

Location: Draft at the Biltmore, 1/1/15

Aroma: There’s a clean hop component, a little orange/citrus, and some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-gold color with a small white head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, lightly sweet, with a clean bitterness on the finish
Palate: This one has a nice, clean feel, fairly light body, with a lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid, lighter example of the style. Fairly quaffable. There’s not much to fault here as far as major flaws go. It worked nicely with the food as well.

Thanks to Marshall Hutcheson for bringing me a bottle from NC. Clear dark amber color, thin ivory rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is malt that moves through the palate without incident to a lightly bittered finish. Pretty simple brew, not enough to attract much positive attention.

Clear Orange with white head. Poured from draft at Cedrics at the Biltmore. Sweet honey aroma. Has a honey aftertaste. Decent fruit flavor as well. Not really what I thought is a pale ale - but enjoyable

Pint at Cedric s tavern. Grassy grainy. Clean brownish orange color good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body creamy mouthfeel bitter finish. It’s fine. I like the bitter on the finish best.

Tap @ Cedric’s Tavern Biltmore Estate - pours clear amber, white head, which it retrains, nice lacing on the glass. Comes across as caramel dry malts. A Solid, flavorful, pale ale.
