Notes/Commercial Description:
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all others pale in comparison to this one. Crisp and hoppy, Philadelphia Pale Ale is brewed with Pilsner malt and American hops, which impart a surprising citrus aroma.

Not sure how old this bottle is, its been sitting on the shelves at my job for a while now. Pours a brilliant gold color with really good clarity and a monstrous clingy head. Initially smelt some skunk and then very subtle hints of oily hops. Nothing impressive on the nose.

Some tropical fruit tastes are the star of the show even though their subtle. Has a pleasant sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Finishes with a mild floral hop presense that goes pairs well with the fruit flavors in the beer. Tastes are all very mild though.

The drinkability is quite amazing. Super smooth, super clean, good carbonation and light in body. Would be good as a mild summer session beer.

Well balanced and flavor beer but nothing spectacular.
