Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: zeff80 on 06-30-2012

American Pale Ales hold a special place in the Halls o’ Beerdom. They mark a definitive break from Euro-stylings, materials, and ratios. And, despite their obvious breaks from ye Ole Tradition they have somehow managed to become a Traditional Ale themselves. APA's shine with 2-Row malt, a dash of caramel, and a generous handful of American "C" hop. This APA runs a smooth 5% with Cascade's waving the Hop Flag and singing MY PINT TIS OF THEE! GREAT MALT OF LIBERTY! OF THEE I DRINK!

On tap at ITap in Chesterfield, MO.

A - Poured a clear, copper color with a small, off-white head of foam. It left sticky sheets of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled toasty with some floral notes. A touch of citrus.

T - It tasted of toasty malt, bread crust, light bitter spiciness. There was a subtle citrus kick.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied APA.

O - This is good. Of the 3 Civil Life beers I've had they've all been well done. (467 characters)
