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.

I had tried a small sample at the brewery that afternoon, so was happy to get a shaker pint on draft at Bodega in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a clear golden amber with not much of an off white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, grass, and a nice undertone of grass and mineral. The taste is a fresh cracker malt, along with a light bitter sweetness balanced with grass and grapefruit citrus hop. There is a hint of pine present as well, which adds depth to the flavor. The palate is medium bodied, with crisp carbonation and the mineral dry clean finish. Definitely my kind of beer, very tasty.

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!

Surprisingly unique hops taste. Somewhat like melon and tropical fruit. Really refreshing and unique

Nephilium (1462) - 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.

4 String Pale ale on draft at Miller's Ale House Restaurant in Columbus, oh Appearance - nice light amber color. Very clear and see through. Light, quickly dissipating head. Nose - not much to speak of. Flavor - Good, light hops very refreshing 'lite' hop flavor like you'd expect for a pale ale. No particular hop flavor stood out. Notes - Good overall drinker. Enjoyable on a nice hot summer day, and I'll bet a cool fall day as well. I'd call it a good 'table' beer. Great with a meal, but nothing special for a 'tasting'.
