Black Abbey is my favorite brewery in Nashville and this is my second favorite of their beers second only to The Special. And this one is now available locally in cans! Poured from a can into a chilled Mason jar it held it's he'd for a long time, has a nice reddish brown straw color. Carbonation is perfect, just fizzy enough to tickle the nose, with an excellent hop to malt balance. Perfect American Pale and definitely my new go to in the genre.

Poured reddish brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is muted with caramel, yeast and floral notes. Taste is like an ESB with heavy malt yeast and bitter earthy hops. Moderately clean finish with sweet malty tones

Described as a cross between an APA and a ESB. Right up my alley.

Pours a amber copper with a white head. Aroma is full of english malts giving off some sweet breed and toffee, hops offer some florals, grass, and mild citrus tones but take second fiddle to the malts. Flavor follows suit. A creamy, medium bodied bouthfeel. Overall, a solid, not complex beer that I enjoyed. Would drink again.
