COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber, American-style pale ale is brewed with five different barley malts, generous additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, and a unique strain of yeast. The British, German and American malts used provide a complex blend of caramel, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors. The hops provide a gentle, pleasant bitterness with an intense floral and citrus aroma. It is dry-hopped, unfiltered and unpasteurized. We hope you enjoy this fresh, local beer. Brew details: OG 1.064. FG 1.016. ABV 6.3%. SRM 9.6. IBU 34.7.

One of the most well-balanced pale ales Iíve ever tasted. Poured with a nice, tight head, beautiful color. Big fruity, citrusy and floral hop aromas hit you first, followed by slight bitterness and then transitions nicely into a number of malt flavors -- bready, biscuity, nutty and slightly caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is very full and bodied with average carbonation. You can tell this beer has not been filtered. Overall one of the best American pale ales Iíve had in a while.

Kita (1120) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 19, 2013
On tap @ The House of Brews, NY. Clear amber color with medium sized creamy white head, nice lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malty backbone, which is quickly predominted by fresh fruity acidity, while finish is very pleasant and gently bitter. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Extremely drinkable beer with lots of citrus...

I poured a 16oz can into a tulip glass. There was a code of 0873 which I believe is a Julian code of March 28. It cost $3.50 ($0.22 per ounce).

Appearance: Dark, opaque brown (light, translucent orange in the light). Carbonation bubbles visible. Forms an average sized, ivory, frothy head which retains and laces well.

Smell: West Coast hops of citrus and candy, though mild overall. Some malty sweetness.

Taste: If youíre a new brewery you want a flagship beer thatís going to garner attention and I think The Bronx Brewery has started off on the right foot with their eponymous pale ale. The label describes it as a mixture of American, British and German malts and West Coast hops. You wouldnít think these would pair well, but they do and surprisingly well at that.

The base malt flavor is quite European, reminiscent of a robust British pale ale or a German altbier. A mťlange of toast, nuts, and biscuits lays the foundation for the palette. Itís not too strong, or cloying - just a nice balance of mild sweetness and earthy character. The hops come through quite prominently in the middle and impart a dry bitterness, but itís nothing too high on the IBU scale (I assume). Thereís a light confectionery sweetness on the finish and the aftertaste is fairly clean. Overall, a rather complex and well-balanced brew.

Drinkability: I had no trouble getting down my can of Bronx Pale Ale. In fact, I probably went through a bit too quickly. The mouthfeel is comfortable, rather soft, but still has noticeable carbonation energy. Itís easy to drink in sips or gulps and the hops donít linger for too long (though I wouldnít call this a refreshing beer). At 6.3% ABV itís right where it should be in terms of body and weight and would stand up to a meal rather well. As tempting as it might be, I wouldnít recommend sessioning this

473can. pours a very nice rich copper colour. Aroma. one i can best describe as sweet citrus. Taste. very hard for me to explain accurately, but very bitter with some slight caramel and nut undertones. Overall. Quite a good beer, and another great example of an american pale ale.

A very heavy looking ale. Dark amber with a huge tan head. Heavy hop and malt taste for a pale. Overall, quite nice.

Man what a surprise this one was! Iím always on the look out for a reasonably priced APA, proper APA that is. Poured a light amber, leaning toward reddish with a good head, not to much and smaller bubbles than most pale aleís we get here, more like that of the American ones, which I like. Not a lot of hops on the nose, enough to recognise the cascade and let you know there was probably a bit of dry hopping at some stage, I like the smell of the English malts though, just a personal preference of mine. The malt is mostly caramel and a bit of toffee with a late, fairly smooth bitterness. The hops are there, I would have liked more but the balance of English malts and classic American hops is quite pleasant. I bought this from the local Dan Murphyís on the Gold Coast for 65 bucks a carton with 473 ml cans! Thats good value if you do the math, I worked it out to around 45 bucks a carton if you compare it to the local 330 ml bottles. Thats pretty good value for the closest thing to Epic Pale I can get here! The ABV is a bit high but suits this beer well, the only issue is I canít take more than one with me and still drive home. Iím not sure if this is a different version but the specs on the can (I like a lot) are different from this site, SRM 20, IBU 50 on the can. This is a solid beer for what is available here, and good value to boot! Unfortunately when I asked if this will be a regular beer at Dan Murphyís the girls said no as it has not been selling very well.... Bummer!
