Beer is made by creating a liquid rich with fermentable material. This ‘wort’ is moved to a fermentation vessel where yeast, a living organism, is added. Yeast swims around the fermenter gobbling up the soluble sugar and converting that energy into alcohol. Imagine the feeding frenzy of millions of tiny yeast cells eating their way around a big fermenter. It’s a volatile and active environment. During this time, the beer is literally alive. Just prior to packaging, we add a little yeast to the clear beer for a secondary fermentation. This helps to add carbonation, remove oxygen, and prolong shelf life. STYLE: Bottle Conditioned Pale Ale BREWED SINCE: 2012 ABV: 5.5% FERMENTATION: Ale yeast, four varieties of hops, four varieties of malts.

    Pours clear golden with a thick cream-eggshell head. Malty aroma has a citrus hoppy overtone. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, rather like an IPA, not strong but refreshing. Mouthfeel is about average in fizz and viscosity. Good for a party, or with lunch.

    I had this beer at the 45th Street Taphouse Bar & Grill in Ocean City, Maryland. This was a nice beer - hoppy and decent strength at 5.5. I'd have this again.

    A deep golden colored body with a big fluffy textured, white head rising robustly above. There's good hang time on the head. It settles eventually into globs of foam atop the body. The profile is citric hops with some biscuit malt in the tasting. Flecks of sedimentation drop to the bottom of the glass on last pour. Medium bodied and refreshing.

    Fresh hop bouquet that is lively and abundant. Hazy copper body with a quarter inch white head and long strands of lacing. Bitter hop bursts, light to medium bodied and fairly dry. Very good mouth feel. Fruity with pine and lemon followed by some crackers and dough.

    On tap @ Bearden Beer Market. Golden color, bubbly white head, some lacing, good carbonation. Orange zest, citrus and very light pine initial aromas and flavors, nice light malt sweetness, clean and refreshing, light linger. Easy to drink.
