Had this at a tasting at the Roman Market in Mahtomedi last week. The guys from Lift Bridge were there.
The color is copper tinted golden. About a finger or two of off white, light tan head with decent retention. Leaves some spotty lacing.
The nose is a nice combination of piney and earthy hops, with citrus and floral hops. A nice balancing biscuity malt backbone is fairly assertive and up front. Pretty typical for a pale ale.
Taste is similar to the nose, maybe a little hoppier than I thought it would be. Piney and resiny hops dominate and the floral and citrus hops aren't as prominant in the taste. Again, an assertive biscuity malt character balances things nicely.
Mouthfeel is light to medium, and smooth and crisp with a medium carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good, a nice pale ale.
A nice solid, simple beer from the guys at Lift Bridge. It's not overly impressive, but refreshing and just what it should be.
