Pisgah Pub Ale

Drunk at the brewery on 4/3/09.
Very difficult to categorize this, nor am I sure what Pisgah is trying to do here, but here we go.
This is described as a “Pub Ale” but I have no idea what that really means. My suspicion is that they have drawn inspiration from the nasty, cream-flow, pseudo English bitters that we get in cans in the US. Seems like an unlikely source of inspiration for Pisgah, but hey, whatever.
The beer is presented on nitro pour with a Hefe-like, clouded yellow body and a thick creamy head. It is definitely reminiscent of one of those beers like Boddingtons, John Smith’s or Tetley’s in the (smoothflow) can. The real difference here is that there is a VERY strong organic, grassy, earthy note. It’s extremely strong and this is the feature that takes it away from those other beers and puts it into its own realm. This is what puts the Pisgah stamp on it.
Very interesting.
