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