Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

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.

Biscuity, bready, hints of piney hops but with a firm yet light malt backbone, this pale ale is delicious, incredibly pairable with food, and a lovely, yet understated rendition of the style. In a time when all pale ales seem to be IPAs with an identity crisis, this one is really well balanced, full-flavored yet restrained, and imminently drinkable. Does its civic namesake proud!
