I am in the process of clearing out some of therom the interminable backlog here at Chez Woody and it suddenly struck me that I have most, if not all of Full Tilt Brewing's beers, held in abeyance awaiting approved pics. This site has really sped up the process, but for a while, it was slow and once a beer went on the back burner, it became forgotten. My thanks to The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for being an ongoing resource of singles!

From the bottle: ""Full Tilt Brewing's Baltimore Pale Ale is brewed with only the finest American hops and barley. Baltimore Pale Ale utilizes Nugget, Columbus, Summit, and Crystal hops in a blend which provides for an unforgettable aroma apparent from the very instant it is served and a full, pleasant taste which will satisfy your tastebuds no matter what time of year this brew finds you."; "Full Taste. Full Pride. Full Tilt."

I Pop!ped the cap, but I went with a gentle pour since this was part of the backlog and I saw no reason to rouse any lees that may have formed in the interim. I still got a finger of dense, tawny head that hung around briefly before falling to wisps. Color was a beautiful Deep Amber/Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pronounced mintiness and my mouth began to water. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste struck me as being at the upper end of what I would expect in the style. It was very close to being an AIPA and it made me curious as to what their Fully Tlited version might be like. It was very hoppy, but it was tough for me to discern which hop was contributing which flavor. Finish was dry and very satisfying after a couple of days of non-hop-driven beers.

Nice color, very little smell, piney with nice bitter aftertaste. Not sure if I'll repeat... too many local beers to try. Wouldn't turn down if offered.

On-tap at Al's of Hampden, Enola, PA

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that gradually died down and levt lots of lacing on the surface and sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts along with strong notes of piney hops, the latter of which contributes a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has some aromas and bitterness from the hops but wasn't overly piney in the taste.

Serving type: on-tap
