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 I’ve 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 I’ve had in a while.

Kita (1495) - 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 you’re a new brewery you want a flagship beer that’s 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 wouldn’t 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 mélange of toast, nuts, and biscuits lays the foundation for the palette. It’s 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 it’s nothing too high on the IBU scale (I assume). There’s 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. It’s easy to drink in sips or gulps and the hops don’t linger for too long (though I wouldn’t call this a refreshing beer). At 6.3% ABV it’s 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 wouldn’t recommend sessioning this

Hazy deep Amber with foamy rimming lacy beige head; aroma of Turkish delight that is rose and sugar; malt caramel softly blended with woody hoppiness in the flava; feels medium and silky flat; finishes mildly bitter with tangy malt notes and wood

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.
