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.

Poured from a tall can into a pint glass.

Pours medium dark amber with a good thick lid of white foam. Sticks round. Mild malty nose, fruity. Taste is a light bitter malt. Very mild english pale taste. Bitter is tasty throughout. Easy drinking pale. Good option.
