This is my favorite local Asheville Pale Ale, and Pisgah is quickly becoming my favorite brewery. Their variety of beers is amazing.
Can. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger frothy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is much more grainy and toasted maltiness than it is hoppy. Just a very slight floral note in there. The flavor is also pretty heavy on the toasted and grainy maltiness. A light floral hop bitterness in the middle, but not exactly a stunner in the hop department. This tastes a bit more like it could be billed as an Amber ale, rather than an APA. Light bodied and a touch grainy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, not a big fan of this guy, it's just a bit too boring. Bacchus66 (967) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2017
12oz bottle at Pisgah Inn. Pours clear golden orange with a thin white head. Pleasant straightforward aromas and flavors - light citrus hops, caramel malts, bread. Well balanced. Moderate carbonation, light body, medium bitter finish. Solid PA. Homer321 (5202) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Draft at source. Nose is mildly hoppy. Light fruity notes. Taste is lightly bready. Seemingly mild for hops. Lightly sweet. Ok. Good really but not as a pale ale eRock_2013 (514) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Enjoyed this fine craft brew on tap in Asheville. Poured a slightly hazy orange copper, with a steady layer of white foamy head, overall a very appealing display. Starts off a bit mild in the flavor but builds to a slightly resiny hop bitterness. Most interesting however is the surprisingly malty aspect to this otherwise standard pale ale. Lots of fresh grain and caramel malt. Rounded out with a smooth medium bodied texture. An excellent example of the style!

Draft. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like grapefruit hops, resin, caramel malt, and butter toffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grapefruit hops, resin, caramel malt, and butter toffee. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2016
On tap at Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC.
Lightly hazy amber with an an off-white head and fair lacing.
Aroma of caramel, toasted grain and light fruit.
Taste of caramel, mild floral hops, grain, toast, dank forest duff, citrus and light fruit. The flavors work well together to make this a right decent APA.
Medium body and medium/low carbonation.

Shaker pint draft at Intermezzo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a ½ inch light tan head. The aroma is orange and grapefruit citrus, a bit of citrus peel and toasted grain malt. The taste is a nice blend of the softly bitter citrus and the toasted cracker malt. Clean and fresh. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a dry mildly bitter finish. Nice Pale Ale. dwm1034 (785) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Can from comrade Chris from his Carolina trip...thanks! Zeswaft (1783) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Pours a darker orange; aroma is fresh hay; mild hoppy on the tongue / nose; lingers a little; very pleasant....
Tap. Cloudy amber tan color. Aroma of grapefruit. Awesome balance of slight citrus and mild caramel malt. Smooth unfiltered textured. Closest thing to Georgetown Manny’s pale ale I’ve found.
