COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A combination of Belgian and English styles, this Belgian Pale Ale has the subtle spice characteristics of cinnamon and nutmeg, produced by the Belgian yeast. The medium body and biscuity malt backbone, common in English ales, support the subtle hop bitterness to make this beer a perfect blend of styles.

Stuedmaster (352) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours deep gold with almost no head. Not much aroma, slight grain, grass, and biscuit notes. This doesn’t taste like a Belgian ale, more like a watery British Bitter. It has fruity notes which are mostly masked by the astringent bitterness of the hops and overall dry feel in the mouth. I don’t sense any spiciness. This is similar to a home brew by someone with little experience, it’s drinkable but not within style and nothing to distinguish it from the pack.

Appearance - cloudy orange/amber body, 2-finger off-white head, normal retention/lacing Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation Flavor - banana bread, earthy, noticeable spice content, finishes fruity Overall - nice overall balance, highly drinkable

>> Thanks DedicatedToFun for the share. Pours a full haze orange with weak foam. Nose is candied orange, flash of acetone, plastic. Taste is mildly sticky, not hoppy at all. Palate is lemon, some biscuit, flashes of marmalade. Soapy, suddy palate. Thinner mouthfeel.

<!> poor head formation, acetone, plastic, weak body

Very fruity nose, decent hop balance. Slight soapiness but not nearly as bad as some other pales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
