Can is 5.7%abv slightly higher than stated above.

Apearance is quite dark amber,semi-transparent with a nice white head.

The smell is pretty faint, some earthy tones.

The taste is bread, biscuit, earth and grains.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Overall not bad but boring, glad I only picked up a single can.

Smells citrusy, but there is a little armpit-like twinge in there, as if it were a touch stale. Thiis the only turn off of this brew. Beer is well filtered which yields a handsome tangerine/burnt orange color. Flavor is rather malty, with hops mostly for flavor and not hitting too hard with bitterness. Slight citrus in the finish, but mostly a sweet, balanced malt flavor throughout. A touch biscuity. Goes down smooth, but never lacking in flavor. Not a big excitement, but incredibly pleasant.

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Central Waters tulip.

Thanks to Beerwolf for giving me my first Pisgah. Boy that sounds awkward.

A - Pale golden yellow and hazed over with a low but dense cream-colored head. Good retention with an arch of lace reaching skyward.

S - Almost wheat-like pale malt behind a good floral hop nose, mild notes of resin underline the citrusy aroma hops. A bit average though.

T - Toasty caramel malt underlines the subtle hop flavor. Faint floral aspects pop out with a dab of honey and a pinch of lemongrass on top.

M - Malt balanced, hops don't add much more than dryness to the feel. Medium-light bodied and grainy-finishing.

O - Bland but not entirely without flavor, Pisgah's Pale is understated. The one-dimensional hop profile could use quite a bit of tweaking and additional dry-hopping. This one's an easy drinker though!
