Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A new version of an American classic. Our Yazoo Pale Ale bursts with spicy, citrusy hop aroma and flavor, coming from the newly discovered Amarillo hop. The wonderful hop aroma is balanced nicely with a toasty malt body, ending with a cleansing hop finish. Made with English Pale, Munich, Vienna, and Crystal malts, and generously hopped with Amarillo, Perle, and Cascade hops. Fermented with our English ale yeast.

Had this on 2013-01-06 in Nashville, TN at the River Front Tavern.

A - Fairly clear amber-orange with a 1-finger white head and mild lacing.

S - Very mild aroma of light rising bread and slight floral.

T - Sour dough bread, orange citrus, yeast white pepper and moderate bitterness. Good balance.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Smooth.

O - I enjoyed this beer. Had it side-by-side with their Hop Project, which had more flavor but there was something appealing about this one too. Worth a try.

Lightly hazed dark gold body, small white head that dissipates rather quickly and leaves little wisps of lace on the glass. Aroma of mostly floral hops, with some lesser citrus notes, and a good deal of bready malt.

The flavor is very well balanced but approaches blandness. Again the hops are mostly floral in nature with lesser earthy and pine notes but could stand to be amped up a bit, at least to my taste. Prominent toasted bread malt flavor with moderate caramel sweetness. Restrained bitterness and a short finish revealing a late emerging honey-like note.

Medium body and carbonation. Crisp and acceptably clean drinking. Not bad but nothing particularly exceptional about this either, although I could see this having wide appeal with borderline craft drinkers in the manner of Fat Tire and similar beers.

Tyhe beer pours a copper color with a decent 1 finger white head. Aroma is a nice balance of citrus hops, caramel malts and the fruity english ale yeast they use. Flavor is more of the same and nicely balanced. Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Overall a well balanced easy drinking pale ale.
