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.

12oz can in a pint glass.

A- clean and clear copper-orange color with lots of bubbles. There's a big 2-finger, fluffy, off-white head. Looks good. Substantial lacing.

S- Barley malts and floral hops. Herbal, some sweetness.

T- Mild flavors of malts and caramel, some hops. Kinda sour.

M- Good body and carbonation, yet easy drinking. Easily a golf or backyard beer.
Hop bite throughout, packing 52 IBUs.

O- The look and feel of this beer are what appealed most to me. The feel is what made it drinkable, aroma and taste lag behind. Not bad.

Review notes from 12/17/2012, on tap at Harvest in Glen Mills, PA: pours clear orange amber color with a very creamy 1 finger light tan head that faded very slowly, leaving outstanding lacing coating the sides and rings as it went down. A fine looking beer.

First whiff indicates that it's an English IPA, as it's just as malty as it is hoppy in the nose; smells of sweet malt, grains, caramel, light grapefruit or orange peel, citrus hops, piney notes and herbs. It's pretty basic, but pretty nice and balanced.

Tastes like it smells, with sweet malt, toasted grains, caramel, biscuit, toffee, brown sugar, light grapefruit, orange peel, citrus hops, piney hops, grassy notes and herbs. Spot on for an English IPA, it was very easy to drink and rather tasty.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, with very light carbonation, a medium body and a slightly bitter grainy finish. Almost session worthy if I was in the mood for a pale ale or English IPA. This was listed wrong as an IPA, and since it is a pale ale it gets better marks overall from me.

Thanks to Rich Wagner, a Pennsylvania breweries historian, for the beer. He told me this can was picked right off the production line during a tour.

Poured into and enjoyed from a DFH Pint Glass

A - Beer pours a hazy, semi-translucent, orange color. A one finger, foamy head on the initial pour. The head slowly fades to a thin skim. Good amount of tiny carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom. Broken curtains of lacing left after drinking.

S - A malty, sweet aroma. Hints of citrus.

T - A really good ale. A mixture of sweet, bready malts, hops and a touch of pine and citrus (grapefruit). Not overly bitter. A very smooth, easy drinking beer. The ABV is not noticeable.

M - A medium consistency. Medium carbonation. A tangy aftertaste.

O - I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a well crafted brew that you could easily enjoy several of throughout an evening of drinking. This is my first beeer from Twin Lakes and I was impressed. Along with Dogfish Head, 16 Mile and Evolution, Twin Lakes is another reason to try the beers being brewed in Delaware.
