Appalachian Brewing Company Purist Pale Ale Cask
On my last visit to Appalachian Brewing Company, the had the Purist Pale Ale on cask. The beer pours a cloudy gold color with a creamy white head. It has a light lemon aroma. The taste is soft, very delicate, and rounded. The lemon flavor is brought out with less carbonation from the cask serving. The alcohol content is 4.8% ABV. I thought that by putting the Purist Pale Ale on cask, Appalachian Brewing Company changed the flavor of the beer to have a good hops taste, but not a hop bite. It was really a remarkable beer on cask.
