BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States
yazoobrew.com

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.

Odd funky and earthy hop flavors are a bit harsh.

This is my go-to beer when I need a beer for the evening. Very citrusy and aromatic. It got me into brewing my own pale ales and I haven't looked back since.

Deep golden color, almost no head or lacing.

Smell is almost purely malts with a hint of hops maybe.

Taste is much like the smell, very malty medium sweet with little hop flavor and no bitterness.

Feel is thin and a bit watery.

Overall idk what to think , not very pale ale , to me at least... Reminds me of an American red ale .

Certainly drinkable but dont buy it looking for hops .

Nice, solid, American IPA. Had this Nashville staple on tap at 5 Points Pizza in Nashville proper. Goes nicely with pizza, but not a gourmet beer unto itself.

A little darker than you might expect in a pale ale, a little happier than expected, too. Goes down strong with good flavor, but has a more intense lasting effect than expected.

355ml Bottle as a gift from Nashville:
A nice beer overall, some nice sweetness opened things up & plenty caramel malts followed before some some nice bread malts & a moderate bitterness coupled with some toasted flavours brought in the middle. It could have been a touch stronger but the balance was a good one & it was easy to drink too. Not one to specifically hunt out for but it's definitely well worth trying if you happen across it at any point.
