COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flat Earth Pale Ale is a Belgian pale ale. Inspired by beers like Orval and Rare Vos. Made with imported Belgian malt and a Belgian yeast strain. Our Belgian pale ale has a sweet malt aroma with traces of orange, plum and pear. Its complex malt backbone of biscuit and hints of toast to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. We hope you enjoy the fresh "Belgian" beer.

22 oz. bottle. Great looking belgian ale - pours a clear orange-amber with fluffy off-white head. Aroma of malts, candy, and some dark fruit. Light on the palate, but still well-balanced. Flavor of yeast, sweet malts, and bread along with a some green hops and grass near the back of the palate. Slightly bitter finish with a somewhat metallic aftertaste.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a crystal clear copper amber, with a monstrous, puffy, well retained light tan head. Smells of some sweet Belgian candy sugar, dark sweet malts, and sweet candied fruits. Huge carbonation, overly so in my opinion, with much of the same flavors that I got in the nose. Big sweet malts and fruits combined in the flavor, with even a hop bitterness in the finish. Decent, not great.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Pours a nice copper color with some solid head. Aroma is of dark, wet fruits - grapes, plums - as well as some mild but spicy hops. The flavor is similar with the fruitiness coming through more than the hops. The mouthefeel is very nice. This beer fills the mouth nicely, and is quite smooth. The finish leaves a bit to be desired as the aftertaste leaves some hints of vomit (this sounds terrible - it isnt that bad, its just not what I look for in a great micro) , but overall this is a very drinkable beer.

hopscotch (10992) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a huge, rocky/wispy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma consists of spicy, peppery hops, mildew and aged paper with a rumor of caramel. Medium-bodied with spritzy carbonation. Low to moderate sweetness and moderate to medium bitterness. Fuzzy fruit and freshly baked white bread. Mid-length, crisp, lightly bitter, mildly sweet finish.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Thanks to Secret Santa for this one! Very clear orangish reddish amber, very slight head. Aroma of earthy and floral hops, some yeast perfume. Flavor is sort of earthy and some malt, a bit of husk, a touch of floral hops. It is overall Belgian in nature. But in the end, things just didnt quite hang together here.
