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

The Bronx Brewery, "Bronx Pale Ale"
16 oz. can, code "1364 2335"
$2.75 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY

I came across this beer and just had to try it. I knew by looking at the can that it was contract brewed in La Crosse, WI (probably by Steven's Point) but I couldn't pass it up. It seems so gimmicky!

Appearance: Mainly clear, very deep amber that borders on becoming a mahogany brown in color. Short, and short-lived, off-white head. Impeccable lacing though! It leaves almost solid sheets of lace as it goes.

Aroma: Spicy, floral, citrusy and grassy hops atop a dark caramel malt base. There's some yeasty fruitiness working with the hops as well... berry, pear, and crisp apple.

Flavor: Surprisingly full maltiness that displays its caramel character nicely. Yeasty fruitiness runs through it, and the spicy, grassy, and gently floral hops are well-infused as well. It's remarkably well-balanced in one way, but with an edgy bite that's part alcohol (it's 6.3%) and part hop. Despite that aggressive rasp, it then softens and becomes just delicately spicy, and then sweetly floral and dully fruity in the finish. Is that how the Bronx is, full of character upfront and a bit harsh, but really just sweet and flowery on the inside? Hmmmm? It lingers nicely in the finish, steadily revealing each of its components again, one at a time, and finally settling into grassy, gently spicy, and mildly leafy with an undertone of medium caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a brisk carbonation that settles as you progress through the glass to become more smooth and just gently bristling.

Overall: Surprisingly good with more than just a bit of complexity. It's really quite English in nature, but there's an American hop side of citrus to it as well.

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.
