Notes/Commercial Description:
Light and hoppy is the perfect way to describe Uncle Jesse. This West Coast Session Ale is perfect for the person looking for the hoptasticness of an IPA, but not all the alcohol. Dank and citrus notes from the hops outweigh the balance with the subtle honey malt flavor and aroma.

This was a darker ale, very delicious and high in alcohol. I think it had a perfect overall flavor and would recommend it to those who like a full body beer. Glowing with rich color and delicate notes of sweet chocolate smoked coffee. It is a heavy beer for those looking for a fun bike ride.

The beer and foam came flying out of the bottle and all over me and the floor. A little later trying to pour it into the glass it quickly foamed up half of the glass. The body is a hazy straw color though.
The aroma is grain and apricot.
The taste is fairly well balanced and light tasting. There's a touch of metallic, but it's mostly lemon flavored.
The texture is crisp with high carbonation.
A poor beginning and the rest is okay.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of big pine hops with some tropical fruits.

Tastes of the big hops with a small malt backbone. Hops lead off with pine and floral notes backed by tropical fruits and citrus. Herbal bitterness comes through. Malts lean in and add a touch of toasted bread and some sweetness. Finishes up with some earthy hops leaving a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, I really like this. It is hop heavy with low alcohol, and I wish it was sold in 6 packs.

Taste- fruit, spice, hops

Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought it was pretty good. It is definitely a great session beer. I quite like it. I will want to have it again.

I had this because the place I go to has a rotating tap. This is a new beer that they are showcasing. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a local beer and it has an outstanding aroma and almost a reddish appearance. I went back to the pub just for this beer and will do so again.

This pours a light, golden amber color with a brisk, bright hoppy aroma to it. The flavor is pleasingly bitter with some pine and resin mixed with a grapefruit-citrus note to it. Nice finish. Overall not a bad brew, and definitely one that’s easy to drink. I’d have it again.
