Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
While Hoppy Table Beer was inspired by the Belgian tradition of low-ABV, easily drinkable beers, it still occupies a hop-forward spot all its own. Brewed with our 2-row malt blend, Maris Otter malt, and oats, the beer is then spiced with a subtle addition of coriander. We ferment it with our house yeast for classic Belgian citrus aromas. Hoppy Table Beer is hopped with Chinook, Cascade, Comet, and Azacca hops, then dry hopped with more Comet and Azacca. A mildly hoppy aroma full of grapefruit springs from this straw-colored, light-bodied ale. Flavors of pine and stone fruit balance the beer’s clean, slightly bitter finish.

Pours a muted yellow with a soapy and rocky white head that laces well. Smells of herbal and spicy hops, soap, and light grain. Tastes similar with highlights from the grassy and earthy hops. Feel is light and crisp and extremely dry finishing. Overall, I could drink this all day long for summer...that's for sure. Cheers!

12 oz bottle. Pours pale straw with tall, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of resinous hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and herbal. I was not impressed.

Clear light straw colored pour with a small white head. Aroma of grain and light lemon. Taste has lemongrass and earthy hop flavors in the initial taste. Really nice bitterness. Can also taste a little pepper, pine and fruit rind.
