COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ABV 5% 25 IBU’s The flag-ship Dock Street recipe brewed fresh right here at our local brewery in West Philly. Brewed with American Cascade hops and 2-row pale and caramel malts. It is full bodied, exceptionally balanced and always admired for its clean smooth finish.

Light amber colored body with a healthy sized off-white head and soapy lacing. Moderate caramel and toffee that does not get too sweet, complemented well by mellow floral and earthy hop notes. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, restrained sweetness, and a clean bitterness in the finish. A classic. One of the few amber ales that I can actually enjoy a full pint of.

Dock Street is a good brewery and has been creative with many of its brews. This is their flagship beer and, like most breweries, it probably pays the bills, but isn’t their best. It is a good amber with a nice malty flavor and American hops. It is very drinkable but will not wow you.

Poured a mildly hazed light copper color with a minimal sized head. The aroma and flavor were of light malt. Dull with a hint of citrus in the flavor. Light-medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet crystal malt in both the aroma and flavor, with a hint of hops coming through to save a rather bland and boring beer.

Bottle. Nice crystal malt drenched nose with a hint of caramel and perhaps Vienna? Citrus hop with a floral note. Faint toasted nuts and berry. Amber pout with a beige head. Taste is a firm, hard bitterness with hoppy notes reminiscent of too many Skittles, crystal and caramel with a little earth. Subtle grape and toffee. Light body but not watery. The Skittles slime is difficult to bear, but this is still an above average amber.

12oz botttle. Poured a deep amber color with a wispy head that did not stick around long. Caramel and biscuit malt and pine hops in the nose. The palate begins with some bitterness with some sweet malt in the center. Pine, citrus hops at the end with a slightly bitter finish.

Decent beer. Pours copper with thin white head. Mild caramel malt aroma. Taste is all over the place, fruity, yet malty, with a slight hoppiness. Not much carbonation on tongue, rather creamy for the style. Finish has a taste of mild soap. Would drink again, but wouldn’t seek out.
