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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

Woodychandler comes through again with another canned beer.Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops. Taste is also somewhat mild, piney hops and a touch of malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Serving type: can

Another can courtesy of woodychandler. New brewery for me! Pours a golden yellow color with a small white head and no lacing. Nice mellow hop aroma, a bit of citrus and light maltiness. Taste follows suit. Good citrus flavor from the hops, a touch of grapefruit and orange, a bit peppery, some herbal qualities, and mild maltiness. Nice brew, well balanced. Quafable!

Can to Pint
12oz

No canning date

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.

Serving type: can

3.58/5  rDev -3%
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

Serving type: bottle
