COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Heavy Seas, we brew a traditional English-style pale ale with our own East Coast twist: UK Fuggles and Goldings dominate the flavor of Powder Monkey, but has subtle notes of citrus and flower from Cascade hops added in the boil and hopback. Brass in color, Powder Monkey, like all of our beers, is well balanced: distinct bitterness and a slight malt sweetness characterize the taste. In 2010, it won a bronze medal at the World Beer Cup; in 2008, it won a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival.

Leighton (21513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours clear gold with a light, creamy head. Doughy and lightly buttery malts abound with fine, rindy lemon bitterness. Light in body with fine carbonation. Doughy malts to finish, little else. Not altogether bad but pretty uninspiring.

harrisoni (18823) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010
Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. Clear gold, thin beige head. Tea flavour, sweet, not great. Too much tea flavour for me.

Copper colour. Woody, slighlty piney hops meet toasty, breadcrusty malts in the nose. Light bitterness with a juicy malt character. Leans towards woodiness.
