Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Greenville Pale Ale is a traditional, American-style Pale Ale that is rooted in the Pacific Northwest brewing tradition. We use whole flower Cascade hops and American two-row barley malt to produce a light amber ale that is medium bodied with a significant floral-citrus hop essence and aroma that makes it extremely drinkable and refreshing. One of our brewers said “You should name a beer after the town it’s brewed in.” So we did. This is our signature brew. Greenville Pale Ale represents both our local roots in Greenville, Delaware and our interest in “green” technology for the future.

12oz can poured into a Pint Glass. Many thanks to THECPJ!

A - Pours a clear dark amber with a soapy ivory head that recedes to a spotty haze and thick ring.
S - Sweet caramel malt profile with some grassy, herbal hops. Plain-Jane, but nice nonetheless.
T - Follows the nose closely, the caramel malt has a bit of a toasted quality to it and the hops are herbal and slightly spicy. Moderately bitter finish.
M - Crisp and smooth, with a medium body and decent carbonation.
O - A decent APA, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Found this at Dewey Beach Liquors while visiting Coastal Delaware.

Look: The color was a fairly clear copper. Head was a frothy white foam at about 1-finger. Lacing was transparent but present.

Smell: Crisp and light herbal aroma. Very clean nose with some sweet malts and grassy hops.

Taste: Sweet malts started things off with some faint grassy pine in the middle. The finish was rather dry and had hints of wet grass and lingering hops.

This Pale Ale was very basic with high drinkability. A high level of quality was noticeable in the brew. I wouldn't put this one above SN Pale Ale, but it certainly is a close second.

Draft at North Star on 5/20/11.

Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thin lasting ring. Streaks of spay lacing left behind.

Earthy aroma with lots of piny hops and citrus along with a caramel malt presence. More hop forward in the nose than expected with hints of pine needle, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Looks and smells pretty good.

Medium bodied but lighter than expected and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. Subtle crisp hop bite up front with earthy pine and very faint citrus but I was really let down at how weak the hops were given the nose. Slight lactic creaminess and a prominent malt backbone.

Overall this beer wasn't bad. It looked and smelled pretty nice but the flavor was a bit of a let down. Quaffable and refreshing in this warm weather but sort of bland.

Pours a one finger tan head that settles quickly to nealy a layer over a cloudy copper (brown linged) liquid. Smells orange rind, red apple, tangerine.

Tastes american hops of woody character. Some esters of light fruits (pear syrup from a can and fresh apricot. Malt sweet is below hop bitter and dry. Bitter is wrong term, perhaps, more grassy weedy than alpha-acid bitter. Not quite co-humulone either. Metallic copper as a side-note. Md-thick, which is heavier than the style dictates. Thick helped with the limited swwet and to cut into the grassy of the hops. Okay drinkability. Average. Not a lawn-mower beer, but not winter ponderful either.
