Solid pale ale by Bronx brewery. Pours a cloudy amber with a foamy, light beige head. Smells of malt and hops, a bit of grass and a touch of citrus. Taste is on par with caramel shining through with a lemony finish. This is a solid pale that tastes and looks a little more amber than APA. However, I'd drink this again for sure.

A: Poured from the can into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy coppery-amber with a small foamy off-white head.

S: Not much of a nose - a little earthy and a little fruity.

T: Big on the caramel malt, which is followed by modest citrus and a touch of both earthy and herbal, tea-like hops. Finishes with modest lemony bitterness lingering in the aftertaste, doing battle with the bigger malt foundation. Frankly, it drinks more like a modestly hoppy amber/red ale than an APA, despite the name.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is solid.

O: It's good. Not great, and not what I was expecting given the APA name. But a solid beer all-around.

Echoing previous sentiments, this is definitely more of an Amber ale than a pale ale. The description on the back does state this is a "deep amber American pale ale."

Feels a bit like it's trying to be nugget nectar, but this is just a little too sweet to be enjoyable. A pale ale should be crisp, light, and refreshing. This is a little too cloying to be what want.

The label says this beer is intensely floral, and I can't disagree. I just wish it weren't.

Color is a reddish, sunset, with a foamy head, and pleasant carbonation.

More of an amber than a pale ale, it has a fairly hefty malt bill with just a real faint hop in the background. Beyond that it is pretty generic beer.

12 oz can. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt, citrusy hops and ripe fruit. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal hops, pale malt and ripe fruit nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and dry. Very nice brew.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a white head leaving some lace on the glass.

Sweet, bready and caramel-like malt aromas balanced with citrus and floral Centennial and Cascade hop aromas. Crisp, malty and caramel sweetness giving way to citrus and a lingering but subtle spicy hop bitterness. Well-balanced.

A solid, well-balanced American Pale Ale with a classic Centennial/Cascade hop profile balanced by a pleasant malt backbone. Reminds me a little bit of the much more widespread Dale's Pale Ale from Oskar Blues.
