Pub Style

Review - Gritty McDuff's Original Pub Style Pale Ale

"Original Pub Style harkens back to the very first brews Gritty's produced at our Portland Brew Pub back in 1988. "We wanted to make a beer that captures what made people fall in love with craft brewing in the first place; a fresh, classic pale ale with plenty of hop character." says Brewmaster Ed Stebbins. "This is the kind of beer that really started the whole Maine brewing revolution."

Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass! Original Pub Style is a year-round release available in six and twelve packs all over the great state of Maine, and on draft at Gritty's Portland and Freeport brew pubs." --Gritty McDuff's Brewing Co.

The Pub Style pours a light yellow color with a frothy white head. Slightly hazy body, and fair lacing. Fruity aroma with a hint of banana, champagne, and flowery hops. Initial taste is smooth and acidic, then bitter at the finish. Dry and carbonated on the mouth.
