I am not over- inflating any of this when I say, it is the best beer I have ever had. Not to mention that Bill, the owner, is a solid as they come. He is going to be national and soon Halleck will will a world cup medal. I have no doubt in my mind.

12 oz bottle of beer with just a name taped across a brown bottle

A: Good clarity light amber in color looks like almost no carbonation barely any head

S: slight off flavor like stale budlight then some light resiny hops and a good bit of sweet carmel maltiness

T: same slightly off taste follows through to the taste not really aggressively hoppy or malty actually fairly balanced but the flavors are very light a little bland

M: watery thin feel super low carbonation probably lends to the watery feel

O: Its average that slight off flavor is not great but its fleeting the beer is remarkably balanced though but the taste it does have isn't that amazing its rather tasteless

Had on-tap at the source. Received in a pint glass. This is THE beer offering at Chestnut.

4.0 A: Moderately hazed orange brown color. One finger off-white head that leaves lots of lacing.

4.75 S: Floral and grassy hops that are just incredible. Such huge aroma. Malts are very clean but offer a touch of breadiness.

4.5 T: Mild bitterness. Huge hop flavor per above. So good.

4.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Plenty of pleasant creaminess.

5.0 D: Awesome pale ale. One of the best I've ever had. The taste and feel could easily be bumped, so I added a little love here.

As a local beer, drinking it so fresh undoubtedly makes it taste great. But, no mistake, this is the best beer I've ever had.
