COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the new recipe replacing the original He’Brew Genesis ale. Balanced between a West Coast style pale and amber ale with just enough malt sweetness to highlight a flurry of hop aroma and flavor. Witness the evolution of our original creation.

12oz bottle. Small off-white head atop lightly hazed amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some grapefruit, bread, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/orange, some bread, light caramel. Light-medium body, slightly watery, quite drinkable.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a cool early spring Tuesday afternoon. Appearance a cloudy amber with a rich off white head that rims around the glass. Aroma mostly of caramel / bready malt, not really getting many hops. Taste is also more malty than hoppy, more of an amber ale than a pale ale. It’s OK.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a fairly clear, amber-hued body with a white, foamy head that’s just a bit creamyish. Bits of puffy lace on the descent.

Smell: Pale base malts, slightly bready, with just a bit of caramel overridden by zestfully spicy, citrusy hops.

Taste: Modest pale malts, lightly bready with a vague caramel trace to it and just a hint of apparent sweetness. Spice, citrus, but also a small helping of earthiness to sit with from the hops. Sufficiently bitter. Drying, thinning, zesty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I thought the previous Genesis Ale rendition was an above average American Pale Ale, and this certainly follows suit.

Leafs93 (1607) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus, florals and caramel. A touch of pine as well. Taste is bitter with lots of sweetness on the end. Starts bitter and as you drink through it the caramel beces more and more predominate. Light mouth feel and very thin. Enjoyable and definetly an excellent session brew.

Draught at Rattle N Hum - shared with Mette. Clear amber - white head. Toasted. Grassy. Fruity. Nutty. Berrie notes. Nice bitterness. Nice fresh.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours the color of dark-stained oak furniture, with a thin off-white head. The initial aroma is reminiscent of brewery tours when they let you you taste some toasted malt ... yummy. This drinks with that same toasty edge right up front. I’m not getting a lot of "west coast" hoppiness here, but it is a very well balanced beer, with just a hint of spruce at the finish.

Blairgus (2415) - California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
22 Mar 2012, bottle. light orange, clear, steady bubbles, foamy head. big, sweet, raisiny malt aroma. med/full body and a bit fizzy. i really like this. I don’t know if i’d call it a pale ale however. it has a much sweeter, maltier taste than what i expect in a pale ale. hops are present but second to the raisin malt profile. this is really nice cross b/w a pale ale and a . . . actually, i guess it’s just a malty pale ale. i like it.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and small dough aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
The aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus hops there is also sweet caramel malt to balance. The appearance is pale amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is a bit thin. Overall this is a good beer and could easily pass for an IPA.
