Notes: Formerly "Seven Hills Pale Ale".

Hazy light golden in color accented with a clean malt aroma and floral hops. Restrained hop additions allow Wormtown’s Pale ale to maintain a great balance between soft malt flavor and bitterness. A real session beer!

The second beer brewed at Wormtown.. the first batch of this particular style.

Appearance: Light, golden, with the expected haze of a young, unfiltered beer.

Smell: Some American hop aroma mixed with bread, and a touch of yeast. I'd love a bit more hop aroma (or perhaps less of the yeastiness).

Taste: Light and balanced. Gentle, bready malts with a bit of American hop crispness. The slight yeastiness is a factor as well, again, largely owing to the batch's relative youth.

Mouthfeel: Very dry and crisp, the way I tend to like my APA. I sometimes find the crystal malt character in other pales to be distracting.

Drinkability: At 4.5%, certainly sessionable. I had three while visiting Peppercorn's for the Wormtown release party.

The first few batches of beer from a new brewery are always going to be a bit experimental, and I don't doubt that the recipes and processes will see some tweaking in subsequent batches. I generally prefer my APA to have a more pronounced hop character, but this is still within the parameters of the style. I would be interested to see how this stands up with a bit more age, to allow some of the yeast-driven character to subside a touch.

Don't see this on tap as much anymore, but a a solid pale ale somewhat reminiscent of Sierra Nevada. Minimal hops which has deterred me from it recently.

Picked up a growler a few weeks ago for a party. Solid APA, but was super fresh. Pretty hoppy for a pale ale. Worth trying.
