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.

Tap pours provide bigger head and nice floral and citrus aromas. Pisgah is 90%+ organic but since hops are not sources organic, the USDA changes made them lose the label. Great mouth feel and better than typical Pale Ale tastes including a nice malty- hoppy balance.

Growler my roommate received from a friend. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Rich burnt orange color. Had a smallish white head that went away quickly and lift low lacing.

S: Pretty faint smell mostly floral scents along with some citrus and hops.

T: Taste like toasted toffee and malts. Hops and citrus present themselves stronger in the taste then in the smell.

M: Carbonation leaves a nice tingling on the tongue. Could have a bit more body to it. This is easy to drink.

O: I really enjoyed this as I have all other Pisgah beers ive tried. If your a fan of the stay I would say defiantly pick this up.

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
