A growler labelled Endless Summer. Thanks to Deuane for bringing this one back from NC.
A: The ale has a pale, sickly yellow color to it, a dead ringer for fizzy BMC. The growler poured off a nice sized white head.
S: The nose is grassy with hops and dry with grainy malts. The hops are strong enough that I thought the beer was a kölsch.
T: The ale is refreshing, a nice summer quaffer. The hops have an earthy grassy flavor, present but not too strong. Underlying the hops are grainy malts that have a green fruit flavor. Non-hop citrus flavors are also evident.
M: The mouthfeel is very dry, enough to make you want another sip. The flavors are mild and the ale is quite obviously light.
D: Very quaffable, the ale is a nice end-of-summer drink. I've had Pisgah's big beers and it's good to have one of their small offerings.

Via growler pour on 9/23/08. Thanks to Deuane for sharing this with us!
A - Pale golden body with a slight haze and two fingers of fluffy, white head that settled into a ring of retention and left tons of lacing all the way down the glass. Moderate carbonation.
S - Crisp, hoppy nose akin to a pils with a grassy and earthy character, as well as a touch of lemon rind. A biscuity malt aspect rounds out the aroma.
T - Like the aroma, the flavor is grassy hops, lemon rind and a bready/biscuity maltiness in the backend. Nice bitter hop bite in the finish.
M - Light bodied with a smooth, watery texture and moderate carbonation. This ale has a crisp, clean finish reminiscent of a pilsner or kolsch.
D - Wonderfully sessionable ale with a nice hop character. My first sampling from Pisgah!

Picked this growler up at Greenlife in Asheville.
Pours a light golden yellow color with a slight chill haze to it. about a fingers worth of white head that has good retention. Some light lacing is left behind.
The aroma is somewhat faint but I notice some bready yeast and light hops. Light smell for a light beer, I guess.
The flavor is light, also. The hops shine past the bready yeast flavors in the form of light, sharp citrus flavors. Pretty darn refreshing while sweating over the grill.
Mouthfeel is light and thin. Carbonation is very active, also. Slow pour is key here. This growler disappeared rather quickly. Great beer for a warm summer day.

Now know as "Endless Summer". Got this one in a growler from Brusin' Ales in Asheville.
A: Poured a light golden color almost a transparent yellow. Nice head retention lasted pretty much the whole glass' worth.
S: Strong smell of malt and Honey although it doesnt say honey was used. Light hop aroma as well.
T: Taster great good use of hops to balance out malt flavor. Hops are not incredible pronounced
MF: Great feel nice and smooth.
D: Fantastic drinkability. I drank the whole growler with my girlfriend in a matter of three hours. Would def have again. More so in the warmer months though.

Appearance: Pours a light golden color with a decent head that leaves some lacing
Smell: Bready aroma with a modest but discernable hop presence
Taste: Light and bready up front but the hops clearly come through on the finish
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and robustly carbonated
Drinkability: While I am not a big fan of American Blonde Ales I was very pleasantly surprised at this one; nicely balanced and well worth drinking on a hot day

Poured a very light golden yellow with a nice white frothy head that faded quickly leaving behind a decent, but shortlived lace ring. Smell was lively, lots of yeast was present even in the aroma, and it was very light. Bread and earthy grains were the predominant aromas. Taste was crisp, light and refreshing, perfect for a summer day. Very smooth and full of bready and earthy grain tones, with a slight hop presence as it warmed. Overall this was excellent for exactly what it was a great summer ale. Would love to see this bottled so I could throw down a few while I ride the lawn mover!
