Squatters Emerson Avenue Pale Ale

Today, Squatters is releasing this year's entry for the the Great American Beer Festival's Pro/Am Competition. Emerson Avenue American Pale Ale is the Gold medal winning entry from the 2012 Beehive Brew-Off, brewed by home brewers Tommy and Gabi Lopresto.

Pours a murky deep amber color with a sturdy two & a half fingers of beige foam. The nose is floral with light citrus and berry notes - clean toasty malts also present. The taste starts bitter with grapefruit/citrus rind notes. The toasty malts pop through for just a bit, but then the bitterness comes back to linger in the finish atop biscuity malts. 6% abv. Available at Squatters locations. Good luck in the competition!

Cheers!
