I had this one at the Flying Saucer. I like Schafly beer but rarely get to try them.

As with most beers at this bar, this one was served in standard pint. The beer is bright gold with a dense white head.

Fresh grainy nose, don't get much hops.

Taste is fresh and grainy. There is a bit of backend bitterness that intensifies as you work your way through the beer. Bits of apricot, cracker and a touch of something sour at the finish.

Mouth has nice crisp carbonation.

It drinks easy and went well with my beer cheese soup.

A - Body is orange-yellow with bright, coppery highlights. Slightly cloudy. 2 fingers of off-white head forms and has decent retention. Thick rings of lacing all the way down the glass. Beautiful.

S - Citrusy, grassy and spicy hops take center stage. A pleasant background of sweet caramel and toasted malt make for a good balance though. Overall, not as aromatic as I was hoping for.

T - Lemongrass, slightly tannic black tea flavor and honey-like malts are first up. Juicy and citrusy through the middle with some earthy undertones. I could do with a bit more hop bitterness, but I am quite happy with the hop flavor they've packed into this one. Finish of bitter orange peel and biscuity malts.

M - Medium body. Finish is complex, syrupy and hoppy. Leaves the mouth feeling like it has a good coating of hop oil and malt sugars. Nonetheless a refreshing beer.

Schafly APA looks great, smells good, and tastes okay.

It poured a beautiful cloudy apricot-color, with a massive foamy off-white head. It left rings of lace from the rim to the bottom of the glass. The smell and flavor had a great deal of pine and citrus rind, with a hint of sweet grapefruit dominated by the acidic and bitter white rind. The flavir finished with pine and resin. The feel was weak, with an extremely dry finish.
