Lift Bridge Crosscut Pale Ale

Lift Bridge Crosscut Pale Ale
Sampled in a pint glass, on tap at Common Roots
Rating: Okay

The beer pours an orange copper with minimal head that collapsed instantly into a white collar and a thick haze on top. No lacing.
Smells yeasty, with just a hint of caramel, and a faint metallic note.
Caramel sweetness up front, followed closely by citrus notes and a light acidity. Citrus blends well with the hops, which lend something a little more than a balancing bitterness.
Moderate carbonation and light to medium body.
All in all a pretty simple but drinkable beer. Definitely sessionable, and probably a good candidate if you need something cool & refreshing after mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.

  1. My dearest beerophilious,

    Since you send this out in the open, may I add a few remarks?

    I'd love to hear more about the beers you sample – not on the taste side, but on the availability side. You see, I'm faraway in the cyber world and didn't know about Common Roots. Now I googled it and found out it's a Minneapolis pub, but is it brewed there? Is it availbale elsewhere ? In what area ? Is it a temporary brew there or is it a regular brand meant t o be all-year long ? Are there stoies or anecdotes about it ? I don't need much, but that would enhance my experience and maybe allow me to order some or contact the brewery, or even convince me to look for a job as a land mower in Minneapolis…

    Oh, and give us more. To see your blog building up is d-e-l-i-g-h-t-f-u-l… 😉

  2. Thanks for the feedback — I'm actually in the process of setting review standards (in terms of information, presentation, and resources). I made the mistake of posting the Crosscut review in a bit of a hurry.
