16oz can. pours a dark clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, fruity with some floral hops notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast, fruity mild citrus flavors. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, fruity mild hops bitterness. This brew seems to lean towards the sweet malty side with little hops. Overall an ok drinking brew.

Pours a pretty deep amber color, with plenty of off white foam that clings to the glass heavily. Sweet malt aroma with some citrus hop and a touch of stone fruit. More maltiness in the flavor with subtle hop chatecteristics and a touch of oak.

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.
