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.
