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.

Had this on tap at the City Tavern in Philadelphia. It seems to be an English style Pale Ale. The copper color has some grassy and caramel aromas. It is well balanced, but does not stand out as an exceptional brew. It was good to start the evening with, but there were better beers to come.

This brew looks kind of like a pale orange soda -- yellow-tinged orange in color with a small white head, somewhat cloudy in the glass. The aroma was lightly malted with grassy hints. The mouthfeel was full, but thin -- nicely coating the palate but then fading into the air. The taste is very light, slightly floral, with just a suggestion of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Not a bad brew, but it didn't "wow" me either. It would make a nice session beer.
