I tried this as part of an 8 beer tasting tray at the pub. The tasting tray is an excellent value, featuring Big Head brown, Grumpy Bear Wheat, Powder Hound pilsener, Rutting Elk red, Beavertail Raspberry, Randy Goat pilsener, and two seasonal brews that are new: Bloody Hell Pale Ale and Burrowing Badger Summer Ale. This one was a light golden with a modest white head. Slightly fruity hop nose, with a palate of pale malt and modest hop character. This was not a standout among the beers I tried. As far as the two seasonals, I thought that the Bloody Hell was more interesting and I ended up ordering a full pint of it instead of the Badger.
