Pours copper. Short, foamy, off Whitehead that lasts shortly with light lacing.

Smells Citrus, Light Carmel, Light toasted malts, and lightly earthy.

Taste bready malt, citrus peel, light toasted malts, light Pine and earthiness. Finishes dry with citrus peel and light pepper linger. Medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

I got this freshly tapped at a brew fest during a visit to my hometown near Indy...the source. PDG stands for pretty damn good. That pretty much describes it.

On tap at the local pub.

Pour is copper in color with 1 finger of thick white foam. Nice lace grips the glass the entire way down.

Smell is hops and citrus very basic for a pale ale. I'm convinced after all these years that having the true "basic qualities" of a pale ale is not a bad thing!!!

Taste follows well from the smell. Hoppy bitterness with citrus notes on the finish. Great fresh, clean, and crisp taste! PDG holds up to its name here!

Overall a good example of the style by. A brewery that's growing in popularity in my area. I'll be buying more of this.
