Yellow with a white head, neutral aroma. Light mouthfeel and ABV. Billed to us as an extra pale. Reminded me of some wheats, did not get an expected noticeable bitterness.Dry finish. Bland and lacking in taste. Not one of the better ones.The hops and malts of the lineup are the main US ones.

Had this one on tap at Opa earlier today. Nice clean appearance, medium mahogany color, nice head to start which quickly diminished. No lasting lacing on this one. Not much hop aroma, but very assertive malt start with a crisp but not spicy hop finish. The malt backbone survives throughout. I had this one for the first time last Spring/Summer and didn't fancy it at all. It had a metallic quality to it. Had it next right around Turkey Day last year, and was very impressed. A nice APA which is now one of my faves from Opa. The brewers, including Dan Kramer, were there today sampling one of their just brewed beers and we chatted briefly about the 47. They confirmed that around Thanksgiving they changed the hops used. I told them I thought it a great improvement. Keep up the good work guys!

Enjoyed at the brewpub restaurant.

Shaker pint glass presentation. arrived with a 1/2" beige head over the slightly cloudy golden brew, with plentiful small-bubbled sticky lacing. Aroma is lightly hoppy. Taste is pale malt sweetness, coupled with ample fruity hoppiness. Mouthfeel and drinkability were both superb. Another example of a nice beer, with the right presentation, turning into a great beer. Try it if you can.

This beer was a clear yellow offering with a one finger head which stayed around a little while.

Aroma was light malts, and somewhat fruity, not that powerful at all. Quite subdued.

Taste was similarly light... lightly hopped and fruity malt with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Good.

Mouthfeel was average... almost too light. Drinkability, however, was pretty good, you could do a lot of this stuff.

Sampled July 2005 at the brewpub.

This pale ale poured a clear, light amber color with white foam that settled slowly, and coated the glass as the liquid level descended, and left lace. The smell was of tangy, fruity, floral hops. The taste was firstly fruity and floral hops, followed by malt, and finally moderate hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was very dry and smooth with medium body and modest carbonation. The finish was nicely dry and hoppy. This was a very enjoyable pale ale.

Oh no!!!They served this offering in a chilled glass! Hmmm...so I waited for it to warm, and lo and behold...it wasn's bad. Color was a light amber, with little or no head (chilled glass?). Smell was fruity hops...a little light, but aromatic enough. Taste had a consistent hop element throughout. Not overpowering, but nice. Mouthfeel is dry and smooth..pleasant enough. Drinkability is ok, I would have another.
