Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all others pale in comparison to this one. Crisp and hoppy, Philadelphia Pale Ale is brewed with Pilsner malt and American hops, which impart a surprising citrus aroma.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Loaf of bread, some pilsner sweetness, toasted, and some herbal, grassy, and citrus hops.

Taste: Same as above with more citrus notes and some bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation. Just the a pale ale is supposed to drink.

Overall: A very simple and straightforward pale ale. Definitely sessionable and can enjoyed multiple times over the course of the day.
