12 oz bottle poured into an MKE tulip.
A - This faintly hazed golden pale ale pours with a small white head that disappears into the dormant brew almost immediately but leaves a little ring of foam left clinging to the glass.
S - The aromatic hop blend of Cascade and East Kent Goldings gushes fourth from the pour. Citrus grapefruit and light orange tease with a kiss of pine and a floral/herbal notes. Give the beer a swirl and you'll awaken traces of resiny plastic which aren't entirely pleasant but quickly fade into it's light malt backbone.
T - A hop-smack in the mouth, Pull Chain debuts with the blend of herbal citrus and floral notes the aroma foreshadowed, all tightly packed. Individual nuances are less called out but grapefruit rind is one of the more prominent characteristics that rests on the subdued pale malt base.
M - Citrus notes the hops offer aid in making Pull Chain feel like a lighter bodied pale with nice dryness. It's quite crisp and refreshing, finishing with a light touch of grapefruit bitterness for a nice-bodied pale!
O - Strong drinkability emanates from Pull Chain due to it's careful balance of mild maltiness balancing out forward hoppiness in aroma, flavor, and moderate bitterness. Pull Chain Pale Ale is a very solid go-to brew from the guys at MKE.

While at Pforta, Nietzsche had a penchant for pursuing subjects that were considered unbecoming. He became acquainted with the work of the then almost-unknown poet Friedrich Hölderlin, calling him "my favorite poet" and composing an essay in which he said that the mad poet raised consciousness to "the most sublime ideality".

Pours deep golden amber with a thin, creamy head. Trailing lace sticks.
The smell is of citric and floral notes with caramelized bread.
The taste of citric and hop bitterness is balanced by caramelized malt sweetness and a touch of plastic-like resin through the middle. Bready and hoppy dryness in the finish.
It has medium carbonation with a lighter side of medium body.
A bitter-leaning pale ale, but still easy enough to drink. Not a bad brew!
