First Growth Single Malt Ale is a blonde ale that comes to us in a 22 oz. bomber. It pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a billowing, creamy white head. The nose is light citrus with a mild and floral hop presence.
This beer begins with a light toastiness from the grains and but then delivers some great citrus notes and a hop kick in a bitter, crisp finish. It’s very bright, but at the same time, also earthy. The PacMan yeasts even give it sort of an English ale dimension. This is a medium-body beer with lots of carbonation and a slight creaminess.
A very easy drinking beer; simple in its flavors, but I think it does what it intended to do; showcase the freshness of the ingredients and the essence of beer itself. I’m really looking forward to trying other selections from the Chatoe.

This one was on the discount table, no date. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with an off-white, slightly tan, foamy head. The head sticks around, 1/2 an inch, for the duration. The lacing is OK - little, dry spots of popped bubbles, like sea foam on the beach. The smell is fairly one-dimensional - nothing objectionable, nothing out-of-this-world: sour grain, some citrus/vinegar. It's a clean-tasting, dry beer. If this weren't the coldest night in November in Alabama but rather, oh, JULY, then this would be an amazingly refreshing ale. Sharp, metallic hoppiness, grapefruit rind, basil, lavender. This one doesn't leave you parched, and the carbonation's just about right. There's a bit of density to it that is welcome, as it's not watery or thin. A good go at it.
