Pisgah is a favorite stop while touring asheville, the pale ale (flagship) was a little underdeveloped or green. It's a great beer to enjoy with dinner but I'd prefer something fresher and refined for a daytime brew. The recipe seems to have changed in the years I've been drinking it, but it's always a good standby.

Thanks to my bro in law for nabbing a growler of this for my visit. I am assuming this is the same as their pale ale currently on tap. Enjoyed from a pint glass.
a - brew poured a soft brown orange that was semi transparent when held to the light. Head was thin and fizzy.
s - nice pale malts, some earthiness, but very appetizing.
t - extremely balanced pale ale. Not hoppy at all, just a classic American pale. Fresh and crisp. Clean and malty. A bit grainy, but nice overall.
m - crisp and light bodied. Could toss them back all day.
o - overall a really nice American pale ale. Malt forward and not hoppy. Classic. Solid.

On draft at the brewery.
Poured a hazy orange hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
See my review of the IPA and know that the profile is essentially the same except that the pale ale is cleaner with a touch less sweetness (duh).
The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.
Overall a tasty hop driven pale ale.
