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.

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.

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.
