so it turns out that the pretty darn good pale is, well, pretty darn good! imagine that. my first beer from bier, and while its not super creative or attention getting, it is a very tasty pale ale. very light amber hue to this one, a touch of crystal 60 probably gives it that color, and the head is short, white, and lasting. sturdy pale ale from the nose of it, lots of high alpha american hops and just enough rich grain to balance. a honey roasted almond flavor on the front end, quite unique coming from grain, and a cool place for the hops to take off from. cascade or something similar, delicate but resinous, with only moderate bitterness, all in the finish. i like the fuller body on this, it takes a long time to taste it all the way through, and the fullness of it makes that journey worth taking. carbonation is soft but sufficient, and in the end, the grain is as interesting as the hops. not going to shake anything up with this brew, but i love the balance, and would absolutely drink this regularly if it were available here. true to its name.

Malty, but not a malty mess.

Poured a very nice mid-copper with great head and great lacing. Nice sweet and malty aroma with nice fruity and floral hop scents, without being very deep. Sweet malty flavor with fruity and pine hop finishes. A bit of hop roughness, but still a nice beer overall. On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room.

grabbed at the brewery a week and a half ago.

poured cold from the growler a crisp, translucent straw gold to a sun king shaped pint with a snow white, finger sized, short lasting head

aroma of citrus-y hops and fresh yeasty bread.

sweet yeasty bread up front, lemon rind and citrus in the way back.

crisp, clean, medium bodied, subtle sweet, no bitter presence.

very enjoyable and refreshing on this super hot working in the yard day.
