Notes/Commercial Description:
This copper colored ale is our flagship beer, made primarily from American hops. Quite possibly the perfect Pale Ale.

I had the Tannhauser Pale Ale on tap at Sycamore in Columbia, MO. I haven't seen it there in a long time.

The name is a bit decieving. It doesn't look like a pale ale or taste like on either. It is much more a copper ale in look and taste. It had a slightly hoppy taste but not really a powerful flavor that grabbed your taste buds. It wasn't bad it just didn't "wow" me. Its color, smell and drinkability were very good. It just didn't meet expectations based on the name.

A clear copper with a decent head for an APA that indicates a good level of carbonation.

Hop aromas with underlying malt and spice. Malt and hops well balanced.
Similar flavor with a nice aftertast from the hops. Big crystal component, which I find quite off-putting. Carbonation adds much to the mouthfeel. I had tasted this earlier from a growler but this is much more drinkable with a full level of carbonation. This Americanized version of an English Ale is just little mild for my present APA tastes, but would make for a nice session athe the garden at Augusta Brewing.

Full copper. Creamy large-bubbled beige head settles to a persistent 1/2" cap of foam.

Nose is initially quite hoppy, with a nice earthy/spicy thing going on. Nice underlayment of malt as well, but there is a significant note of crystal malt. Malt eventually predominates.

Palate is very malty with a decent lingering bitterness. Big crystal component, which I find quite off-putting. Very soft bottle-conditioned carbonation gives a sliky mouthfeel.

Pours a cloudy, amber/orange color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of hops, pine, and citrus. Seems to fit the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, and some pine. Overall, a pretty decent beer that's not real strong in body.

A dark straw yellow with no head whatsoever

S smells of grainy malt and citrus hops

T tastes of light, crisp citrusy hops and a lot of pine with some grainy and a touch of bready malts. Nicely balanced and flavorful for a pale ale.

M nice carbonation with a full body

D this was a very nice pale ale. Good drinkibility, especially at $2 a pop on-tap.

A hazy amber /oak brown brew comes to the table at Square One Brewery. Little bit of frothy ivory on top.

A woody flower dominates the aroma, one can tell this is English style pale ale. The light floral hops also appear in the quaff, a woody resinous finish balance out the initial malt rush. Light and crisp brew, I'm really impressed.

Easy drinking brew, those crossing over from the tasteless macros will enjoy this, along with the seasoned veterans. I could drink these all evening, savoring each one.

Note: see this is listed as an APA = NOPE, it's an English P.A.

Clear light copper color, decent white foamy head, light caremel and flowery mild hop aromas. Light body and mouthfeel, balanced malt and mild hop flavors. This is an english style pale ale, very mild and average, kind of bland but very much expected.
