Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

In the long view of the history of beer, American Pale Ale is a newcomer. Based on English Pale Ale, American brewers adapted this style into something new. Born out of the reverence English Pale Ales during the 1980’s American beer scene, APA is the bold, hoppier cousin of Pale Ale. With an emphasis on American hops, APA is gaining popularity with breweries racing to make these ales with such great hop characters.

bottle from september 2009. so a little past its prime. a friend gave it to us.

a golden with a thin white head that dissipates fast. hazy

s vanilla, malt a little citrus.

t malt forward, all the hops are gone. the malt is present through out. the ending has a lemon zest and a bitter aftertaste

m thin and crisp, slightly prickly with a light small bubbled carbonation.

o a good session beer for me. nothing that i would actively seek out but i would definitely have it again.

would like to try it fresh

Served in a Shaker pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Crisp amber-orange with 1-finger of oatmeal colored foamy head with decent retention and some thin lace.

S: Aroma is slightly dank hoppy with some fresher pine and orange citrus aromas. The malt bill lends some residual caramel sweetness.

T: Very clean flavor with a good balance of light caramel sweetness, bready maltiness, and orange-grapefruit citrus and piney hops. The hops are central but the maltiness provides a solid backdrop.

M: A little to light for my taste for the APA style but not terrible, dry towards too dry. Carbonation is also a little heavy-handed.

O: I liked this beer but a little work to provide a little more body and lighter carbonation to give a creamier feel would be welcome.

12oz bottle

A - Pours an amber orange with a hefty eggshell head that last awhile.

S - Citrusy and herbal, bready malt, sharp grain notes, sweet pale malt. average lacing.

T - Follows the nose with heavy citrus and bread, stingy bitterness, grainy pale malt, herbal crunch, lightly toasty, the citrus turns less heavy and more bright. Pine resin comes through with a long finish bitter finish. Finishes slick with a false dryness.

M - Moderate prickly carbonation, medium body.

Nice flavors with an aggressive bite for an APA. My first from Shlafly and it won't be my last.
