Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A new version of an American classic. Our Yazoo Pale Ale bursts with spicy, citrusy hop aroma and flavor, coming from the newly discovered Amarillo hop. The wonderful hop aroma is balanced nicely with a toasty malt body, ending with a cleansing hop finish. Made with English Pale, Munich, Vienna, and Crystal malts, and generously hopped with Amarillo, Perle, and Cascade hops. Fermented with our English ale yeast.

On tap at the Flying Saucer. According to the server, the beer is named after the use of the hops variety. Butterscotch golden, with a light floral aroma. At the front, you think the beer is going to hit you with a pretty solid grainy punch, but the hops manage to slide right up against the malt and infiltrate, so that the combination is quite pleasant. Hops are slightly fruity - apricot comes to mind, although that is just an approximation. Finish was very clean, and this beer has a high drinkability attribute.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 20oz imperial pint. Thanks to HollyAnn for the hook up!

Bottled On: Mar/Week 1 (2008 I assume)

A: Pours a nice orange-y color with a creamy light-tan head that dissolves into a bubbly skim that leaves considerable lace behind.

S: Pine and citrus hops dominate the smell. Grapefruit, toasted biscuits and caramel, as well.

T: Bitter piney hops. Grapefruit too. Also noticed a fresh cut grass hop flavor lurking in the background. Toasted malt, pepper, and caramel. This tastes fresh.

M: Oily and full. Decent amount of bitternesss tempered by the dry toastiness and sweet caramel malt.

D: A very sessionable APA. If this was available in Chicago, it would probably be in my regular rotation. Great Job Holly, finding this for me at a gas station!

From the growler and fresh. Dark golden brown. Pours with little head that lingers for a while and leaves a bit of lacing. Citrus bursts, hops and tangy. Mouthfeel is tart and refreshing, lasts forever. Finishes with the same citrus and tangy flavor of grapefruit. Hops still present. Better fresh than in the bottle if you can get it.
