Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

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.

Pours a golden amber color. The taste is mostly hoppy with a small amount of malt. Not much head or lacing. This was a good summer beer but very unpretentious. Reminded me of Belgium Lambic with a slightly fruity aftertaste.

Found this at a restaurant while staying in Nashville. It's good and what you would expect from an APA, but pretty average. Nothing special really jumped out for me.

both me and my buddy who i shared this with were pretty unimpressed on the whole. i love yazoo, and had a bunch of great beers from the recently, but this one seemed a bit pedestrian, even though it boasts amarillo hops, which usually have my interest. this seems a little over malty for the style, and the hops are lost in it, or maybe it isnt dry hopped very much, because that bright fruity aromatic is faint. i also think the english ale yeast here is a little disagreeable. i like the yeast, but it needs a different base to work off of. i think its residual flavors clash a little with the amarillo, and this gets more exacerbated as the beer warms up. when its ice cold though its still pretty decent, as the hops stay ahead of the grain. the carbonation is through the roof, which i think helps keep it light. i have heard others say great things about this one, and while it is not generic in the least, it just never really delivers what it promises to. drinkable for sure, but not the best they have to offer.
