Notes / Commercial Description:
Our look at British Pale Ale is a bit more opportunistic but still within the "Special/Best/Premium" style. We wanted a nice bright session beer with the Bitter concept (medium Gold, good clarity, low maltiness, dry finish, bitterness) and came up with one that incorporates North American Hops- Centennial- that keep the beer punchy. This is a newish trend within the style and one that we feel keeps the flavor bright and refreshing.)

Orange Amber in Color. A bit hazy. Smooth. Malty. Some hop bitterness that balances out well. Easy drinking. Real good English bitter. Not the sexiest style, but it's good.

The can label is perfect for this beer as it simply says craft beer. Almost like a steam beer or common. A little heftier body than a typical blonde but easy drinking. Minimal light bitterness and a hint of floral nose from the light hops. Clean body.

Not at all a traditional English IPA. More of an American English IPA hybrid. Cloudy peach brown color. Served with minimal creamy head, but there is copious lacing. Aroma is a bit
Muted, but what is there is grapefruit and floral hops. Taste is yeasty with a bready maltiness to it. Then a good dose if American c hops.

Definitely in the top five of my favorite beers. They do an unbelievable job in bringing the British bitter to life, with a balanced measure of hops and great flavors, and crisp finish. Drinking civil life's brittish bitter takes me to England in an instant. Love it!
