Basement Batch is is a traditional American-style Pale Ale. Much like our infamouse award-winning choc beer, it's handcrafted with only the finest ingredients. Starting with a base of American-grown 2-row malted barley we add liberal amounts of caramel and Victory malts to give Basement Batch a rich, almost nutty, malt backbone to complement the unique citrus character Cascade hops, which are the gold standard for this style. Like all of our choc beers, Basment Batch is "bottle conditioned," which means that it's fermented a second time while in the bottle. This long-established method of carbonating beer will leave a thin layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. So, pour slowly and carefully to maintain clarity,and enjoy!

Cloudy copper, medium head, high lacing. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Bitter, sour, woody, nutty flavor. Acidic, pretty terrible.

Clear amber with a fleeting head. Mild aroma is faint cascade hops and sweet pale malts. Smooth medium body. Flavor is mure more forward than the aroma, with sharp floral hops on a sweet pale malt base. Nice.

12 oz bottle thanks to Soonah. Pours cloudy copper with a big, fluffy beige head. The aroma is smooth, fruity hops, sweet orange, pineapple, some melon and pear, and a graham-cracker like maltiness. The flavor is a mix of hops and yeast, but isn’t as graceful as I would like. Grapefruit, pine, leather, tea, and crackers kind of mix together throughout. It has a good bitterness to it, which gives it a crisp finish. I still think it’s pretty good, but it could definitely use a bit more, erm, harmony.

12oz bottle. Pours clear orangish brown with off-white head. Aroma is earthy with malts, citrus and some hops. Flavor is malty with hops, citrus, caramel and some earthy malts. Medium mouthfeel. Could be a lot better with some more hops. Decent pale ale.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Soonah. My first Oklahoma beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a half finger off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is malt and earthy hops. The taste is malt, earthy hops and mild resin in the finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Decent pale. Thanks John!

ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clearish, amber body with a thin, wispy, white head. Smell: Light earthy, citrusy hop nose with an even lighter sniff of pale malts behind. Taste: Standard pale maltiness with only a very slight sweetness. Earthy, citric hop character with a medium amount of bitterness. Finishes dry, lightly bitter, and a tad watery. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Unfortunately, one of the few Pete’s Place brews free of a noxious infection, but all I really got was a limp, lackluster APA.

Cooper color pour with 3 finger head which left good lacing througout. aroma - didnt pick up too much here, got a faint smell of earthy hops. taste..eh..just okay, not real balanced for a Pale Ale, a little to much hop bitterness, In my opinion. Just felt like it was missing something, it had just a touch of sweetness, but it wasnt balanced enough for me. Overall this was just okay, but as a Pale Ale, I was a bit dissapointed. I dont think I would drink more than one of these at a time. SNPA is much superior to this one.

emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Pours a translucent copper orange with a one finger foamy head. Nice looking. The nose shows a nice hop presence, fresh earthy herbal hops, a little bit of pine, some background sweetness. The flavor shows more of the malt, has an English feel, bready, some hop bitterness, piney and waxy, some problems in the flavor. palate has a nice bitterness but has more of a waxy character than I would like.
