There are plenty of great breweries in Virginia. After trying this pale ale Im not sure if Lickinghole is one of them. It doesnt have any major flaws but neither is it anything special either. If you need a benchmark then it makes as good a comparison as anything else.

Aroma / Appearance - The transparent bronze body glimmers under a fresh vanilla head. White wine, gentle hops, and soft cool malts enrich the air. The inviting nature does enough to garner respect but not much more.

Flavor / Palate - The bitterness of cotton candy soaked in tree sap bites at the mouth and tongue. Vinous flavors emerge seconds later. The finish then fades quickly and unremarkably. No weaknesses or strengths seem evident even at the very end that would make this a repeat purchase..

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly hazy orangish copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly hoppy with some doughy and slightly sweet caramel maltiness. The hoppiness isnt all that clean or distinct, theyre muddied by the mixed message maltiness. The flavor of the hops arent all that clean and clear either, theres a moderate bitterness, but still too much maltiness in here. I wish this were a bit lighter bodied and more attenuated than it is. Medium bodied and clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, cant say Id recommend picking up this one.

Tap @ Mekong. Form orange with ample head. Smells like white pepper and gum. Dry. Flavor follows. Nice.
