Olde Hickory "Table Rock Pale Ale"
Olde Hickory Brewery - Hickory, North Carolina USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.1%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a hazy copper amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing but did have excellent spotty and clingy lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt, a strong herbal hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (over ripe grapefruit).

The taste was bitter and acetic with a mild caramel note in the beginning with the finish being rather bitter, hoppy and pungent with the taste of over ripe fruit. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow allowing one to totally get the full effect of the hoppy citrus ending.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation.

Overall an average Pale Ale with a twist, it is a brew that is just a tad bit on the harsh side of hoppy...
