Ale Asylum beers from Madison, WI

5.8% ABV. Pale Ale from Ale Asylum in Madison, Wisconsin. Acquired during my visit there for a wedding. Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head and a good lace. The aroma is nice & fruity with some mango and citrus with just a mild caramel hint. The flavor follows with some nice melon and citrus. There is some distinct bitterness in there as well, more bitterness than say your average citrusy fruity pale ale/IPA. There is a mild biscuit maltiness in there as well and not really any sweetness. This is very tasty and one I’d gladly have again from Wisconsin!

7.5% ABV. Belgian IPA from Ale Asylum in Madison, Wisconsin. I had this beer from my hotel room (see pictured overlooking a lake) Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with a fresh citrusy hoppy character and a biscuity yeasty note. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a grassy citrus hop bitterness and flavor for balance before a drier, herbal hop finish. A true to style and tasty Belgian-style IPA.
