Beyond the Pale

A couple of weeks ago, I finally got around to paying a visit to Beyond The Pale. I picked up three bottles: Pink Fuzz, Rye Guy, and Half in the Barrel (a collab with the Clock Tower Brew Pub)

Pink Fuzz

Pink Fuzz is a popular one that they apparently sell out of frequently. 

Colour: cloudy orange

Aroma: grapefruit

Taste: surprisingly not as bitter as I expected. This seems to hit the right spot for my level of bitterness. 

ABV: 6%

Overall: really enjoyed this and will be a regular purchase for me when I make it out there. It was really busy the day we went, and I have to assume it's like that all the time. 

Rye Guy

Another one of their regular beers.

Colour: Cloudy yellow orange

Aroma: citrus

Taste: Lightly grapefruit.

ABV: 6.7%

Overall:   I found the taste to be like a cross between Pink Fuzz and Half in the Barrel.Or maybe I was half in the barrel by then. :) Either way, tasty. Yum.

Beyond the Pale Half in the Barrel

This is a collaboration with the Clock Tower Brew Pub. Sadly, I must have been enjoying the beers too much and forgot to take a pic of this one. :(

Colour: reddish brown

Aroma: sweet oak red wine?

Taste: slightly bitter smooth red wine hints

ABV: 6% 25 IBU

Overall: I really enjoyed this. My wife liked it as well. Easy drinking nicely balanced beer. I'd love this to be a regular brew.
