A: Clear copper with a three-finger fluffy white head that slowly faded, but never dissipated and left fantastic lacing.

S: Rich, buttery, biscuity English malts overlaid with a well-balanced piney and citrusy hop presence, along with a touch of honey.

T: An almost perfect balance of hops and malt that starts off with a burst of honeyed Maris Otter up front, followed by a light pine mid palate and a mildly resinous finish.

M: Full and creamy, even from a can, this tasted like a hand pump ale.

O: I've never managed to catch the Bronx Brewery stuff on tap, but this canned version means I will be more aggressive in seeking out and sampling it when I do. This is a beer I would be proud to call my own.

12oz can. Sample from the brewery.

Pretty good head retention, lacing stays around for a while. Good clarity showing a tawny hue. Balanced nose of bready graininess, caramel malt, orangey hop, and fruity alcohol. Deep smoothness, big malt character. More than enough hops to go up a against the hefty malt backbone. This is quite the pale ale, nothing flimsy about it. Love the balance and depth.

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.

S-very sweet yeasty malty ness

M - stickiness for the finish

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