look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Draught into nonic

Two finger fast fading head

straw gold in body, moderate carbonation.

Smells: bread, lemon, and barley

Taste: lemons, bread, light hop

Mouthfeel: fine

Overall, this is a beer that is good, yet boring. I'm going to try the brown ale. I hear it is better. Furthermore, I think that this brewery will be better off once they have their own on-site facility.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: This poured a clear dark gold with almost no head.
S: It smelled like earthy copper and sweet peach, with some orange.
T: It tasted like copper and orange and peach, with some barley. It had a fairly clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Ok body.
D: This was a typical small batch pale ale. The peach character was a little unique, but otherwise this was fairly unimpressive. It was easy enough to drink, but not worth getting outside of the Biltmore estate.

$5.00 pint at Cedric’s Tavern at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.

Appearance: Faintly hazed, copper-gold body with a sustained coating of near white foam.

Smell: Aroma of pale malts yielding a basic, bready barley character along with hop hints of florals and seed-popping lemon wedges.

Taste: Simple taste of pale malts accented with sweetish traces of honey and a light, underlying breadiness. Hint of fruitiness. Touch of dried lemon peel and some soft florals preclude a medium-light bitterness, though it’s sufficient enough to balance the initial sweetness and pave the way for a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A competent, food-friendly pale ale, though I admit to only pairing it with the lone pint of Cedric’s Brown I had prior.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Cedric's Tavern on the Biltmore grounds

A - copper with a soft white head that has good retention

S - very faint aroma, a hint of citrus

T - faint bread, faint citrus

M - medium bodied, smooth, a bit crisp

This is a refreshing beer. It doesn't have great flavor but it's highly drinkable. It's unoffensive and to style though a bit less malty than you may expect. I stopped in on an extremely hot day in May so this was a welcomed, quaffable refreshment.
