TASTING & PAIRING NOTES

Mitch Steele
Brewmaster
Appearance
Beer pours a deep golden/light amber with a cream-colored head.
Aroma
A fruity hop blend comprising citrus and stone fruit aromas, along with a nice, spicy “continental” malt character.
Taste
The hop character stands out with spicy, fruity flavors. There’s a bit of herbaceous hop flavor, followed by substantial orange and peach fruit flavors. The malt character that follows has hints of biscuit with some spiciness from the rye malt.
Palate
The beer has a medium body and a substantial yet balanced bitter finish.
Overall
This is a unique and interesting take on the pale ale style. By using European malts and hops, the flavor profile is akin to several continental European styles yet has the bitter and hoppy elements of a classic craft-brewed pale ale. The hop character is focused on the Mandarina Bavaria hop, a new varietal from Germany that, while also having a nice European spice character, brings out huge fruit notes similar to orange and peach.
