COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tavern Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale. It is a medium to full-bodied beer with a hoppy aroma. Tavern Ale is served unfiltered resulting in a hazy or cloudy appearance. It has a full malt finish with a well rounded bitterness. Tavern Ale is an American Pale Ale because of the large amounts of American hops which lends a distinct, almost citrusy flavor to the beer. Therefore, our Tavern Ales is quite different from the "spicy" or "herby" flavor of European hops.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle. Maroon color, small beige head. Nose brings out nice citrusy Cascade hops notes with lots of malt. The flavor’s more on the malty side, but certainly not overpowering. A nice, decently balanced pale ale. Good session beer with plenty of flavor.

This American Pale Ale pours an orange copper color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt and citrus and piney hops. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are piney and grapefruity. Nicely balanced, slightly hop forward APA. It is almost IPA like in its hopiness. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Amber colored, small beige head that only lasts a little while. Malty nose that’s a little bready, and has citrus notes. Flavor is bitter, a little metallic, and citrus. Good bie and lacing. Mouthfeel borders on heavy, as does the finish.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Standard pale ale here...coppery color, moderate malt, hops, leaving it with a suggestion of citrus. Not bad, but nothing too exciting really.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2008 12oz bottle. Medium amber color, filtered appearance, contrary to the commercial description on this page. Displays a very nice hop bouquet and overall hoppy enjoyability. Well balanced and crisp, with a sweet, hoppy aftertaste.

3.4
Braudog (6852) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft pint at the Annapolis brewpub. Finally, after four pints, a flavorful brew at Fordham. reddish bronze with a thin wisp. Fully malty but also with a bit of nice northwestern hoppy bite. Can’t believe the waitress recommended this to my friend who asked for a pilsner. Read my place review ... what a joke. (#3197, 11/10/2007)
