Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  4.90% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
American Pale Ale, brewed to be slightly less malty, but conspicuously hoppy. The aromatic hops are grown here in the historic Silver Valley making it slightly more dirty than blonde.

The appearance is the expected copper brown.. looks good.
The smell is a little musty with slight hops showing through.
The taste is more malt than I expected with a APA. The balance is more malt.
The mouthfeel is good. Very full and with the proper carbonation.
Drinkabiliy is high due to the low bitterness of the hop addition.

I was told this is 6% ABV at tap house.

Light amber with some light white foams. Wow, this is a butter bomb! Butter, butter and more butter dominate the nose here. Flavor is butterscotch and grain with a background of bittering hops. My wife really liked this one, I found it to be brutalized. Can't believe they're selling this.

At 4.9% ABV, Wallace does a great job striving for an ideal representation of the true American Pale Ale style.

The beer pours golden, has a light hop aroma but nothing overbearing or revealing of what the taste will be. My mouth was met with a sensation of a crisp thirst quenching taste that is very well balanced between the malt and hops.

This seems to be a great beer for individuals transitioning to craft beer, or any other craft fan that is seeking a beer that can be drank one after another without losing taste buds or getting bloated.
