4/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a nice head; decent retention and some wispy lace

Smell; Caramel and pine, along with some crusty bread tones

Taste: Crusty bread forward, with developing caramel tones; piney bitterness builds, through the middle, and then blends with the malt flavors in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nothing wrong with this beer - a well-constructed old school APA; a delight to drink

Nice hazy gold to amber in the glass, with a decent head of foam and lacing. Subtle hops in the nose and initial taste, but much less than some APAs. Smooth carbonation and med to light body renders it very drinkable. Biscuity malt with barely any sweetness. No off-tastes and a hint of hops bitterness at the end to round it out. Very enjoyable, but nothing particularly complex. I liked it.

Had on tap at The Yard sports bar in Baltimore. Served very cold, but decent PA still came through. Overall a decent hoppy pale ale that worked well with salty /briney appetizers

This beer comes off more of an IPA with a slight balance toward malt. Slightly sweet with a good aroma and hop flavor.

I am in the process of clearing out some of therom the interminable backlog here at Chez Woody and it suddenly struck me that I have most, if not all of Full Tilt Brewing's beers, held in abeyance awaiting approved pics. This site has really sped up the process, but for a while, it was slow and once a beer went on the back burner, it became forgotten. My thanks to The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for being an ongoing resource of singles!

From the bottle: ""Full Tilt Brewing's Baltimore Pale Ale is brewed with only the finest American hops and barley. Baltimore Pale Ale utilizes Nugget, Columbus, Summit, and Crystal hops in a blend which provides for an unforgettable aroma apparent from the very instant it is served and a full, pleasant taste which will satisfy your tastebuds no matter what time of year this brew finds you."; "Full Taste. Full Pride. Full Tilt."

I Pop!ped the cap, but I went with a gentle pour since this was part of the backlog and I saw no reason to rouse any lees that may have formed in the interim. I still got a finger of dense, tawny head that hung around briefly before falling to wisps. Color was a beautiful Deep Amber/Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pronounced mintiness and my mouth began to water. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste struck me as being at the upper end of what I would expect in the style. It was very close to being an AIPA and it made me curious as to what their Fully Tlited version might be like. It was very hoppy, but it was tough for me to discern which hop was contributing which flavor. Finish was dry and very satisfying after a couple of days of non-hop-driven beers.
