I'm not going to rate this beer on the norms of rating beer but I will say this that the other people that gave a review on this either work or have some sort of affiliation with this brewery to rate this so high I personally think that this beer is a total drain pour it tastes like miller light with more of a "beer" taste to it

Have had this "new" beer from the new Susquehanna Brewing several times at local taverns -- always on tap in a pint glass.

Pours to a a head slightly less than an inch. Medium lacing that lasts long enough to indicate desired freshness.

Although this is classified as an APA, the color is not pale -- it is more that of an amber lager.

The hops are not upfront in the foretaste so your first impression is of a rich ale commensurate with the fine blend of malts (see their web site). But the hops quickly assert their presence while not overshadowing the malts and not imparting excessive bitterness and not lingering too long in the aftertaste.

This beer is a pleasure for good times.

This was the first time having any beer from Susquehanna Brewing Company. This brewery is new but the family has been in the business for a long time.

The nose was strong for an ale. Had almost IPA qualities to it which I happen like a lot. Quite hoppy notes in the nose.

It pours nice leaving a light white head that quickly fades away. The lacing was also light as well.

The taste was more complex than I expected for an ale. First I got the bitterness of grapefruit, which settled into a nice malty flavor with almost a Munich style malt profile.

Has a solid mouth feel that ends in a bitterness that makes you want another drink. Very nice on a summer night.

Overall I am pleased with the beer quality. It is a beer that pairs good in any situation.This might be my new go to beer.

Had in taster cup at the brewery before it was released to the public.

Quite average appearance, light golden, clear, and bubbles rising gently. Smell delivered hops immediately, almost suggesting an IPA, so I expected a hop forward pale ale when I tasted it. In tasting I received a well balanced ale, slightly heavy handed on the hops, which is definitely okay with me. 35 IBU's? Wow, I would have guessed more. I love this beer. Looking forward to being able to buy in bottle for home consumption!

Great job Jamie and SBC staff!!

A - Nice golden yellow color with a foamy head that left lots of lacing on the glass.

S - Picking up on lots of hops and some bright malt scents too. Can't quite place any particular scent among the hops and malts, but it smells fairly good.

T - Wonderful sweet taste, very delicious pale ale. Smooth and creamy, and very tasty. Picking up some hot buttered toast and a little some potato chip on the tongue, and something akin to a fried dough on the rest of my mouth, very good. Has a great salty aftertaste too, almost like french fries.

M - Not too thick or thin, a good place for a beer to be.

O - Another good beer by the SBC, so far they haven't let me down! Haven't been able to get a hold of their third beer, but I'll see where the beer gods take me next. A must try for any fan of pale ales!
