COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and elderflowers, leading to a dry finish. Huge thanks to yespr for supplying the last missing US state to me.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy golden color with a finger of so of white head. S: The nose is a bit disappointing (not that I had incredible expectations to begin with). Very mild aromas of citrus and floral hops with a slightly stronger malt presence. T: The flavor is a bit more impressive than the nose is. The same floral and citrus hop components are more pronounced here, with a mild bitterness. The caramel malt gives the beer some needed body. M: Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of body or aroma, both being in the middle of the scale. D: A decent enough pale ale. I would have liked a little more hop character, but there was a fair amount to make it a palatable APA.

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. This beer pours a clear golden orange color with a medium and fluffy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Large thin patches of lace that slide down the glass quickly. Grassy hops and grainy malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and mild fruits. The finish is lightly hopped with a short malt and fruit aftertaste. Not very exciting for my first beer from OK overall.

2.3
jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and murky light amber color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel/toffee, faint hops? Taste is medicinal, aspirin, medium malt-caramel/toffee, yeast. OK carbonation. The aspirin seems to mean a problem in process somewhere. If their beer really is different than this, I would love to rate again. Although I emailed them 2 times in June and as yet have not gotten any reply.
