Notes/Commercial Description:
Greenville Pale Ale is a traditional, American-style Pale Ale that is rooted in the Pacific Northwest brewing tradition. We use whole flower Cascade hops and American two-row barley malt to produce a light amber ale that is medium bodied with a significant floral-citrus hop essence and aroma that makes it extremely drinkable and refreshing. One of our brewers said “You should name a beer after the town it’s brewed in.” So we did. This is our signature brew. Greenville Pale Ale represents both our local roots in Greenville, Delaware and our interest in “green” technology for the future.

Found this at Dewey Beach Liquors while visiting Coastal Delaware.

Look: The color was a fairly clear copper. Head was a frothy white foam at about 1-finger. Lacing was transparent but present.

Smell: Crisp and light herbal aroma. Very clean nose with some sweet malts and grassy hops.

Taste: Sweet malts started things off with some faint grassy pine in the middle. The finish was rather dry and had hints of wet grass and lingering hops.

This Pale Ale was very basic with high drinkability. A high level of quality was noticeable in the brew. I wouldn't put this one above SN Pale Ale, but it certainly is a close second.

Pours a one finger tan head that settles quickly to nealy a layer over a cloudy copper (brown linged) liquid. Smells orange rind, red apple, tangerine.

Tastes american hops of woody character. Some esters of light fruits (pear syrup from a can and fresh apricot. Malt sweet is below hop bitter and dry. Bitter is wrong term, perhaps, more grassy weedy than alpha-acid bitter. Not quite co-humulone either. Metallic copper as a side-note. Md-thick, which is heavier than the style dictates. Thick helped with the limited swwet and to cut into the grassy of the hops. Okay drinkability. Average. Not a lawn-mower beer, but not winter ponderful either.

Not a bad pale ale, but not a terribly memorable one either.

Pours clear amber with a lively head and carbonation clinging to the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet and a little flowery. The flavor is straightforward, with piny hops and a round bready sweetness at the end. There is a sharp, piny bitterness. Mouthfeel is slick.
