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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Pours with two fingers of white foam on top of a lightly hazy, golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

S - an aroma of bready malt, light fruit, and a bit of solventy spice.

T - light, dry malt up front with some lemony tang in the middle. Finishes with lightly peppery notes and a touch of herbal bitterness.

M - A moderately light body, average carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - This is an odd one, very little hop character and a lightly acidic lemon flavor throughout. More like a blonde ale than anything I'd call a pale ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: single finger head on a hazy golden body.

S: tangerine and orange citrus mostly, not much else.

T: not a whole lot of hop flavor. Mostly more citrus and some earthy notes provided by the hops. a bready base. Both are so understated that although balanced this one comes across as a little weak.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: a fairly average beer. Not really what I look for in an APA.
