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.

Appearance: Beautiful clear amber gold, white cap with good lacing.

Aroma: Floral, spicy hops followed by sweet malt, well integrated and nicely presented.

Taste: Good balance of malt and hops in concert, each working well with the other. The malt and hops interplay so well I can't decide which is most pleasing except to say the combination is working well. Clean finish.

Texture: Medium

Overall: A Pale Ale clearly above the ordinary. A Pale Ale that doesn't need a shovel full of hops to stand out, this one that gets your attention without shouting.

This is a clear, yellowish-brown beer. Smells strongly of hops. Tastes fairly bitter, good amount of hoppiness, with a black pepperish spice that kicks it up a notch. A great, but not overpowering, spicy hoppiness stays on the tongue. The mouth feel is light, with moderate carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special either. This is a good, middle of the road APA.
