BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Blackstone Restaurant & Brewery
Tennessee, United States

Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Picnic is an English Summer Ale and is a lighter version of a classic pale ale. It retains the wonderful flavors and aromas of British pale ale malt and hops, while using a significant portion of wheat for a lighter body and crisp finish. A hot weather refresher, without sacrificing flavor and character.

A big off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear yellowish farm honey colored beer.

Light caramel malts and light earthy to grassy hops aroma.

A lightly roasted caramel malt taste that brings with it some light bitterness from the hops.

A light dry aftertaste with slight caramel notes on this medium bodied beer.

Seems comparable to Newcastle but quite a bitter better for having the same kinda taste to it.
