American Pale Ale (APA) |  4.30% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured a medium clear gold with a big foamy white head. The head is huge in a Spiegelau IPA glass and leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is malty, with nice bread notes and a little hint of earthy hops. The taste is equally mild, somewhere between a pilsner and a pale. It's an interesting combination. It's got a lighter body, most likely from the malt bill, but there is a nice crispness on the finish. This is a good session pale ale.
