Breckenridge Pale Ale pours to an orange color with a touch of redness. The body is perfectly clear and the foam level is a little less than average. The aroma of this beer is one of citrus and floral hops with some light malt.
Breckenridge Pale Ale offers a smooth and refreshing taste that combines light caramel with bread- like malt taste with several different hop sensations, including citrus, grassy, leafy, and herbal notes. The aftertaste is hop- accented, with a pleasant flavor of earthy/herbal hops settling in on the palate as the taste slowly fades.
Breckenridge Pale Ale is certainly a beer that doesn't hide its hops. The presence of hops is noticed immediately and the flavor of hops is present as well. Breckenridge uses five different types of hops in the brewing of this beer. But Breckenridge Pale Ale isn't a full- bodied brew. It is light bodied and is actually on the softer side, with a less assertive taste that many other ales in its class. Still, I find it appealing in its own unique way. It's a good English pale ale and it makes for a nice change of pace from the excessively- hopped versions of the style.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured chill hazed dark copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.
The smell featured light pale malts and a grassy hop.
The flavor featured both pale and darker German malts and a balancing grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a decent well balanced pale ale. Straddles the line between the English and American styles.

probably the best everyday beer from breck, this pours a nice darker honey to amber color with a finger of lasting head. the nose is very fresh citrusy hops, fairly bitter, but balanced out by a sturdy English and American caramel malt backing. the flavor of this beer is welcomingly hop forward for the style, even more so than most, with a burst of fresh hops, less citrusy than they smell, but still pungent in that regard. mild acidity too, not sure where it comes from, but it gives the beer a real refreshing snappy vibe. bitter in the finish, really crisp, and to me this is the ideal session beer. full of flavor and character but not overwhelming. I will be going back to this one, not sure how it had fallen through the cracks before for me... upbeat carbonation and a body that's squarely medium, everything in beautiful balance. this is a great session beer for people who like their daily drink a little more hoppy than most. bravo to Breckenridge for this style defining American pale ale.
