A beer not afraid to bare it all, just like the enthusiasts at Jerry Johnson Hot Springs, this Butte-copper hued, full-figured beer is a traditional English-style pale ale with earthy aromas and deep hop bitterness coming from the generous additions of English noble hops. Don’t be afraid to show off your pale side.

On tap, in a pint glass at the brewery, on a warm summer evening. Classic and well-done version of the English Pale Ale. Amber color with no cloudiness. Aroma of light caramel with slight citrus. Mouth-feel appropriate to style. Decent head retention and lacing. Dry biscuit malt finish with balanced bitterness. A very nice beer overall.

EDIT - This review is for a dry-hopped version of the beer. This was noted in the beer name that I added but someone felt the need to change it.

This was the fourth or so installment of cask Wednesday at Draught Works.

This draws a pale, clear gold with a tightly-packed two finger head that sticks around forever and leaves really nice lace on the way down. On the nose there is a nice and subdued aroma of fresh hops, which the bartender informs me is either East Kent Goldings or Fuggles, with a malt backbone evident because the hops don't completely overpower the beer. In the mouth there is a low level of carbonation that makes it go down very easily. The floral and maybe slightly tangerineish hops highlight a doughy backbone with hints of caramel. The body is medium light, very easy to drink.

Overall, this is a fine, easily quaffable, very well-balanced pale ale. Jeff, the brewer, has described the base beer as a very traditional pale ale, and the serving style is obviously very traditional, but the dry-hopping adds just a bit extra that make this beer special. Keep an eye out for this on cask Wednesdays.

Pours golden with light cream foam. Nose has floral notes and faint malts, with subtle accents of grain and honey. Flavor is primarily grass and soil - very english to me. Medium body with moderate carb and semi dry finish. Meh.
