Notes/Commercial Description:
Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass!

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a one-inch white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy carbonation,

Aroma: This smells a little funky. There's just something off; there's a bit of an unappealing corny quality to the aroma. Basically smells like a Bass that got left in the sun.

Taste: Thankfully the taste doesn't follow the nose. It has a basic pale ale profile; it's malty and has some hints of toffee, caramel and toast. Unremarkable but not bad.

Mouthfeel: Pretty standard body. Not wimpy and watery, not heavy either.

Overall: This is very average. This brewery has a big local following and I'd check out some of their other offerings. This beer, however, is forgettable.

This is okay and the price is right for its okayness. Very flowery smell and hoppy taste, not a favorite, but is drinkable for a pint, but not two. I would not hesitate to order in a pub with a Reuben sandwich or something similar. It would stand up to the forward flavors of such foods.

Draught: This one pours a clear, golden color. It had a wisp of a white head on it that left a little lacing. The aroma is a bit lighter. Some malts, as well as grassy and earthy hop notes. The taste is clean, and leans towards the lighter side. Some malts, and a little earthy hops. A slightly dry finish. Pretty easy drinking.
