The Albemarle Ale was a gold color with a medium body, even balance and a clean light malty and hoppy flavor, and finished cleanly. The Reed's Golden Pilsner was a light gold color, with a distracting DMS aroma, unfortunately the light body and accompanying light hop flavor were negatively affected by the DMS off-flavor. The Latta Light was a very clear gold color with a light body and mild hoppy, slightly sweet malty flavor and light hoppy finish. The Joe's Porter had a dark malty aroma with a creamy mouthfeel, even balance, slightly sweet malty flavor and clean finish. The Brewmasters Special was the East Blvd. ESB. It offered a hoppy aroma, dark amber color, medium body, malty sweet flavor with moderate hop presence and a clean hoppy finish.
Wednesdays through Saturdays you'll find live entertainment but you'll find attractive prices all of the time. Remember, no Sunday sales in North Carolina before noon. Externally bottled Albemarle Ale six-packs are $6.75, 10 ounce glasses $1.50, pints $2.75, 2 ounce samples 75¢, 1 gallon cubes $12.50, 5 gallon jugs $40, and half-barrel kegs $93. Dilworth Brewing seems like a great neighborhood bar in spite of its distant parking lot. All neighborhoods would benefit from their own brewpub such as this.
