Beer added by: DarkerTheBetter on 08-27-2006

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.

Dark orange in color with yellow hues on the sides of the glass and a heavy haze. Poured with a tall off white foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Orange and lemon zest aromas with floral hops and toasted grain aromas beneath. Medium bodied with a buttery smooth feel and rich, refreshing carbonation. Lightly toasted malt flavor up front that slowly allows tangy, citrus and light floral hop bitterness to roll in from the edges. Finishes crisply with a light lingering citrus and pine hop aftertaste.

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.

Served on-tap at On the Rocks in Lewes Beach, Del.

A: A reddish, copper amber color with a two-finger head of frothy, off-white foam. Carbonation was ample and lacing minimum.

S: Herbal, fruity hop aroma with a slightly hearth-baked bready sweetness in the nose.

T: A rich, balanced flavor with sweet, caramel and roasted malts up front before quickly switching over to a more bitter, herbal and spicy hop palate. A bit hopped out for an APA, but I'm not complaining. The sturdy malt backbone supported the citrusy, slightly resinous hop finish quite nicely.

M: Medium bodied APA with a nice hop bite and mellow, balanced finish.

O: A pretty good local APA from Twin Lakes that tasted nice and fresh at this local beach front watering hole. The taps were dominated by 16 Mile, another local favorite, but nothing that could match the hop-forward, sessionable Greenville APA. I'd pick it up again to pair with some Old Bay fries or softshell crab sandwich.

Thanks to mdaschaf for this one

App- A creamy looking dark orange pour mixed with yellow and a two finger off white head. Sliding puck of head until about 1/2 way then really wonderful retention

Smell- A bit earthy. A small grainular note with a bit of corn in the nose. Didnt get a lot of hops to this but more of a sweet malt.

Taste- A pretty good pale ale that for me was a 50/50 mix of malty vs. hoppy. Still retained a grainy note but followed up with a bit of creamy hop bitter on the end.

Mouth- A good solid medium body with a medium carbonation. Residual creamy thick malts.

Drink- Its a tasty pale ale with a good flavor. Just a bit different. Not as crisp as most, still a bit thick with some creamy hops.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear amber, capped by an inch of foam that leaves some strands behind

Smell: Biscuity, with a lemon citrus and grassy hop character

Taste: Biscuit dough, up front, with a lemon citrus and grassy hop character that develops by mid-palate; hints of toffee develop underneath, after the swallow, though the finish is slightly tilted towards the hops with a hint of sulfur in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad APA, at all, with a rather distinctive hop character, though I am not crazy about the sulfur that appears in the finish

Thanks, mdaschaf, for the opportunity

Thanks, Matt for sending this one over!

Poured from a can into a glass. Little haze on a golden copper color, fluffy white head, some lacing. Looks great.

Smells of floral hops behind a wall of CO2. Some estery malt. The hop character that can be found in it is nice though.

Taste is thin, but the flavor that is there hits you with a twinge of bitterness, little hop flavor. Kind of malty, but thin and light.

Mouthfeel is eh. It's poured from a can and I have found lots of cans are overcarbonated. It's very light and refreshing though.

Overall it's a nice beer. Seems like it would be delicious on a hot summer day, not bad on a cold rainy night. I wouldn't claw through a line of people to get some, but it's certainly not bad.

A - Clear, pale copper with a lasting head and good lacing.

S - Pretty much just rich caramel malts with a touch of earthy hops. Not really what I expect from an APA.

T - Much better than the nose, with the caramel malts rolling over into earthy, pine hops and finishing with moderate bitterness. Touch of diacetyl mid-palate.

M - Medium body/carb finishes clean. Nicely smooth and creamy.

O - Very drinkable APA, was just expecting more hops in the nose.
