COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hard-rocking sly session ale (easy drinking) that smacks the lips with tasty bitter hops and citrusy grapefruit shots to the nose. It finishes crisp and dry, sustaining like a windmill power chord. All of a sudden it hits you...this is the one.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear orange amber with white head. Aroma is fairly sweet and not too prominent with caramel and some piney notes. Taste is moderates bitter and mild to moderately sweet with flavors of caramel, toffee, biscuits, pine and grassy floral flavors. Overall average for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared. Poured a darker orange color with white head. The aroma is bitter and citrus. Medium malt base with the citrus on the front end and a long lasting bitterness on the back end. Wouldn’t really call this a session beer. It’s not offensive in any respect drinkable but it’s just another beer off the shelf.

On tap at Meisters in Grandview. Copper pour with sturdy white head. Aroma of grass, pine, malt. Tastes are caramel malt, orange peel, grass. Medium palate, little under-carbonated for me.

from a can. a darker beer than a typical pale lager, has a little haze. sweeter hop aroma almost like cotton candy. milder ipa flavors but it is quite astringent. alky level is not too apparent but there is certainly a kick to it. Yes, strange astringency is readily apparent on the finsih.

Had on tap poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear golden color with a one finger white head. Aroma is slight but what is there is of grass and citrus. Taste is hoppy but not over done. Grass straw and grapefruit present. Palate is good with good carbonation. Overall pretty good. Not one I’d seek out with so many other great pale ales readily available but a good choice when your options are limited. Cheers!

Nephilium (1517) - Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Caramel malt aroma, with some hop notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Mild hop flavor, with a touch of grapefruit in the finish. Thin bodied, with a very short bitter finish. Not a bad APA, but nothing out of the ordinary.
