Notes/Commercial Description:
A medium bodied refreshing Pale Ale made from the finest English barley and hops. Each sip evokes the feel of the time-honored British pub and a “pint of your best bitter”. A pleasant hop balance at the beginning and a smooth dry finish make this ale a perfect accompaniment to your meal.

I actually found this one to be a bit hoppier then the IPA o be honest. It poured the same golden amber but had more of a reddish hue to it. The smell was highly bitter with a good amount of pine in the aroma and some cereal grains. The taste followed suit as well. A very nice bitter flavor profile with a good amount of hops. A somewhat sour grape aftertaste linger and kept going for a while. Overall this was more then a decent offering and I was very impressed with it. I really thought this was a winner.

to me this brew pub was the best spot in nashvuille, and the white mule ale was their best beer, it even has a great story behind the white mule curse that haunts the building the bar is in, you need to order one and ask for the story of the white mule curse.

good beer this one is their pale ale and it better to me than their IPA.

A bit surprised to see the beer fall under this catagory. I thought it was undermalted for an American Pale Ale. Even more so for an ESB. Pretty good tasting, and clean caramel / bread malt base, albeit light. Hops were a standout, but taking on metalic American hops character, not as earthy as expected for a traditional English brew. A few inconsistencies in this brew, but not bad either. I'd have another.

This is a very good hybrid ESB/pale ale (tough to discern which). A: light golden honey color with light head, low carbonation and lacing. S: Hoppy and flowery with mild hints of spice. T: Hoppier than expected esp. for an ESB. Good hop bite that finishes clean. M: nothing great, nothing terrible, just right. D: The smoothness that this beer finishes with adds to its repetitive imbibing factor. A good bet for a session beer. Quite good.

The beer arrived at the table a medium golden with a low white persistent head.

The aroma was very slight and only a smidge of hop aroma and then a bit of fruitiness.

The flavor was overdone with crystal malt and sweet, but had enough bitterness to be present, but not quite enough to balance.

The finish was off-dry with a very slight hop bitterness which lingers and grows into the aftertaste. The body was medium.

The beer could benefit from more aroma, bittering, and hop flavor.
