The only thing we take more seriously than Mr. Huff’s head of hair is our beer: flavorful and complex. Mr. Huff is a 5.4% ABV, 40 IBU pale ale brewed using both American and UK hops, and a unique blend of 7 malts. Slightly sweet, with a medium body, and a flavorful and aromatic hop finish.

Malt Varieties: Pale Malt, Carastan, 2 types of Crystal, Munich, Caramel 80L, Black Malt, Torrified Wheat

Hop Varieties: East Kent Golding, UK Fuggle, Cascade, Chinook

Pours a deep rusty brown with a medium beige head, some light lacing. Aroma and Taste is mild toasted grains, caramel malt and mild earthy hops bitterness. A medium body palate with moderate carbonation. Finish same as taste. This seems more lager than pale ale. Overall an ok drinking beer.

Poured a pleasant clear amber with a half-finger white head that receded quickly and left minimal lacing. A decent looking pale ale, but nothing special. Scents of floral jasmine-like hops, herbal, dank, hops, a hint of citrus, caramel and pine resin. A very nice, floral aroma that is wonderfully aromatic and floral. Flavor begins with a nicely dank and earthy herbal hop flavor with a nice floral hop flavor present as well. The middle leads into a nice, floral hop flavor and a bit of a wet earthy floral hop flavor, a bit of tangerine and a nice backbone of pale malt. Finish is lightly dry with notes of floral hops, wet earthy, herbal hops, a bit of citrus peel and a little hint of pale malt. Aftertaste is floral hops and a bit of biscuity malt. A nice pale ale flavor profile that is wonderfully floral with a nice dankness. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with light carbonation and a resinous, slightly drying feel. A nice, easily drinkable feel. Overall this is a nice floral pale ale that also adds some herbal and fruity flavors for balance in aroma and flavor. The mouthfeel is also quite nice. Overall a nice pale ale and well worth trying.
