A- Golden in color, thin head

S- There are some hints of citrus, tickles your nose a little bit

T- Fantastic American styled ale, nice full body and goes down smooth, a beer snobs wet dream basically, tastes so good you'll want a few but be careful! i had two and i was buzzing pretty good.

M- You can tell its an ale that's for sure, different than most beers because it's organic

overall, give this brewery some love, try out green man as well

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. tulip.

pours a copper color with a half inch white head. smell is very malty with some lemon zest and citrus. the taste is also extremely malty, not much hops at all. its okay, just too malty. decent drinkability.

overall its decent.

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.
