Growler filled at Yorktown Beverage, Yorktown, NY

Pours darker amber, heavily hazed, moderate tan head, leaves a full collar, and nice looking super fine lacing, scattered fine mini sheets, webbed and spotty.

Sniff reveals a moderate grainy hop package and a nice malty/bready under carriage.

Palate mimics the nose, with more notes of grainy but smooth hops and again sweet malty underpinnings. Nicely balanced pale ale, easy drinking, flavorful and quite enjoyable. I believe this is the first Bronx Brewery beer I’ve tried and I like it. Good stuff that’s well worth a try. Well crafted, every day kinda brew.

From Empire State Cellars in Tanger (Riverhead); notes are from 5/29

A clear amber brew is topped by a cap of foam just less than one finger in height. It retains itself well, leaving heavy spotting as the beer drops down the glass.
Nicely balanced, this beer eases a floral, citrusy and resinous bitterness with caramel and dough. Lots of fruitiness comes out, too. Graininess is a bit strong.
Hops are somewhat earthier in the flavor, with citrus and pine secondary. Biscuit and dough, toffee, and caramel make up the malt backbone while dark fruits notes from the yeast come in as strongly as in the aroma.
The body is medium, surprisingly close to full, and pretty smooth. There may be a carbonation issue, though, as it goes pretty flat. There's little crispness at all, really.

Right from the can..
Slight hint of hop and citrus, but at 50 IBU I was not expecting a real hoppy one.... This was very refreshing, clean and crsip.
A nice solid mouthful and a clean aftertaste

Easily a summer beer or a brew just sitting around after a game

A- Three finger frothy head, pale white in color... Retains well.. Body is dark amber with crystal clarity.

S- rye and spicy piney hops, sweet malt is beneath... Get some floral notes... Kind of a light fruitiness too.

T- Sweet caramel, biscuits and bread hit first... Floral hops arrive mid-palate then lingering caramel on the aftertaste. A very malt heavy IPA but I like it.

M- Thick, creamy, malty and sweet. Only bitter at the finish and it's mellow but lingering.

This is not your hopped up beast of an APA. It does offer some bitterness and the flavors of floral and piney hops, but it also offers a tasty array of malt flavors that I enjoy.

16 oz can poured into pint glass

A- reddish orange... Very dark for a pale ale
S-very sweet yeasty malty ness
T- just like the smell, this is not a hop forward pale ale. Very malty sweetness with some yeast invests
M - stickiness for the finish

O- interesting for a pale ale. Malt and breads yeast run the show

Had a pint at the NY Beer Co near Times Square. It's a classic American pale ale with clear East Coast roots. The hops and bitterness are rounded and gentle with a lightly earthy citrus kick. Doughy, toasty barley rolls underneath, for a smooth pale ale. The flavors here aren't huge or crisp, but it's a clean crowd pleaser of a beer.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a nonic tumbler- pours a clear amber color with two fingers of beige head, good retention and lacing. The reason i gave this a lower score is because it looks more like an IPA than a pale. I like em really pale (and hoppy).

Smell is nice- the pleasant citrus and floral aromas of cascade are inviting. A slight biscuity malt presence but only a hint. Lovely.

Taste is very nice as well- crisp but also smooth. Bitterness up front and throughout; grainy up front but smoothes out into a nice caramel flavor to back up the zesty hops. Not quite as exciting of a hop experience as I would like though.

Mouthfeel is also nice- medium body, moderately carbonated, very little resiny feeling. This is definitely a good pale ale and an exceptional beer by NY standards (I'm used to the Boston standard which is pretty much all around exceptional with a few duds). I've had this several times but this is the first time out of the can- I may buy it more often cause it's fresh (I live a few miles or less from the Bronx brewery). However, Captain Lawrence Sun Block will more likely be my local go to in the warmer months to come. Cheers!
