Growler fill @ Frugal McD's. Got the last of the keg too. Poured into NB Globe glass.

A: Hazy, cloudy, deep copper and orange. Great looking beer, resembles the look of a heavy IPA.

S: Orange citrus, grass, biscuity malt. A good overall hop essence, not too strong but noticeable.

T: Well balanced hop flavor that doesn't disappoint. Great aftertaste, bittersweet, sticky, fruity, and floral. Hops are not overpowering which allows other flavors to compliment the beer.

M: Smooth,slick, light bodied with medium carbonation. A nice mix of creamy froth without being too heavy.

O: This brewery is amazing. Really glad they made it to Nashville. Grassroots is a great pale ale and represents the style perfectly.

Pours a hazy, dark gold or orange color. The head is 2 fingers high, tan, with very good lace. Aromas are of grassy hops and spicy citrus, like orange peel.

The taste has a moderate bitterness with a crisp, citrus flavor. A light sweetness from the pale malts makes for a nice balance. Carbonation is fairly high with a medium body. Finish is clean, with an aftertaste of spices and hop bitterness.

Overall this is a very good pale ale -- flavorful without being too heavy handed on the hops. A good session beer to pass an evening with.

Growler 2/13/15

Belgian style pale ale. Website says fermented with special house yeast strain which must give it the belgian quality. Overall good drinkable beer, but has slightly more belgian characteristics than pale ale. Something different that your ordinary pale ale which was nice.
