COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pugnascious is designed to be a very simple ale. A combination of pale malt, crystal and 4 strikes of cascade hops in significant quantities - in true US pale ale tradition. Not rocket science but no beer is.

3.8
Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
Cloudy golden color with lots of activity. Weak creamy white 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, but with thick legs. Flavors of caramel, lemon, pineapples, grapefruits, apples, melon, sweet grains, floral and herbal spices. Moderately sugary tropical fruits with sharp citrus bitterness. Slick medium body with crispy carbonation. Strong finish, astringent tongue feels with notes of clove, ending quite dry with a slightly earthy and dense leafy feel of hops. Interesting mouth feel, not too excessive but still bold, quite complex and long lasting. Very tasty, really enjoyed the quality of the fruit flavors and the freshness is good. Generally feels like a toned down soft IPA with more malts and a good kick. Overall very good quality craft.

bunget (1039) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
500ml bottle from LCBO. Slightly hazy golden body, medium white head with poor retention. Aroma of wormwood, yeast, dough, some dusty grains. Taste of grapefruit zest, some sour grapes, yeast, herbs. Good. ABV 5.6%

Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Pleasant floral hop aroma with notes of caramel. Gold and sparkling, leaves a continuous lace on top. Flavor is grassy, moderately bitter, a bit resiny, very dry malts. Medium bodied with a good dry aftertaste. Really nice beer, hearty but easy to drink, I’ll be buying more this fall!

3.9
deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Fresh 500 ml bottle. Nose is fresh fruity hops, grassy, citrus. Taste is smooth with bitter finish, earthy hops. Nice.
