On tap at Chatham Tap.

Golden in color. Nice finger and a half of egg white head that clung to the glass for dear life as the beer emptied.

Aroma is strongly sweeter malts, with some citrus poking through.

Taste is nice approachable hops up front, some citrus, faint grapefruit. Then it bolts into a bready malt backdrop, followed by the crisp, drinkable, mildly hopped finish, with delicate bitter apple in there.

Mouthfeel was good, thinner, but it made the beer super drinkable.

Not sure of the ABV on this one, but it felt sessionable. Just one of those beers you'll pick up and drink... and really dig.

Overall, a great start from the good people over at FSB. Hop for Teacher is nicely balanced, a little on the maltier side, but extremely drinkable -- and approachable for those not into radical amounts of hoppiness. Look forward to reviewing more of their work. Good stuff guys. Will have you on tap soon!

Pours a pleasant clear amber, with limited carbonation and lackluster lace.

Nose is crisp citrus hops. I get some grainy malts there, too, somehow. Either way, solid.

Taste is nicely hoppy (as the name implies), with plenty of citrus, grapefruit, and pine tones. It must be noted that this one also features a firm malt presence underneath the hops.

This is a very fair and balanced American pale ale -- plenty of crisp hops to appease even the most die-hard IPA nuts, and more than sessionable. Nice work!

Pours a hazy dark orange, spotty lace around the edges.

Smells a little mellow, biscuity pale malt, earthy hop note.
Taste is a little more hop forward, lightly bitter with a green dandelion aftertaste. Mild bitter grapefruit zest. Feels a bit under-carbed after the first few sips. Overall it was ok, but lacking in any distinctive characteristics.
