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.

Lots of malt flavor. Not a lot of hops taste. Medium bodied. Its ok but I wouldn’t want to have it as a session beer

A lot of the beers from shmaltz are either good but too pricey or heavy for everyday drinking, or too, well, bland. This is the first beer from them that I would consider adding to my regular rotation. Nice hopped, with an earthy but not too heavy malt profile. Not bad.

Bottle. It pours a dark golden color with a fine white head. The aroma is very malty with caramel, toffee and dark grains. There is some light piney hoppiness in there but it’s overwhelmed. The flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. Big time malty with some solid bitterness but the hop character is completely overwhelmed by the malt. This one is poorly labeled as a "dry hopped session ale". You expect something light and hoppy, but you get the opposite. I actually think this would work better if it was brewed at double strength and advertised as a barleywine.

DrSilverworm (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2012
12oz bottle. Thin light khaki head. Clear orange color. Decent lace. Thicker, stronger carbonation keeps this from being too drinkable. Light bitter, kind of toasted taste. Some hops, but more resiny malts. It’s light, and has decent flavor, but I wouldn’t pick it for a session (I wouldn’t want to drink two of these in a row). Also, 5.6% is a bit high for a "session ale"

sethbreaker (173) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Sweet malt aroma, Sweet on the palette, far too sweet, What happened to the hops? I get some very subtle bitterness but nothing about this beer is balanced. Dissapointing

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 9, 2012
12 oz bottle. Amber/orange with some fine sediment and a medium off white head. Aroma of biscuit dough, herbal tea, lemon and some bubble gum. Flavor is toasty malt, light caramel with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a dryish mouth feel. Pretty good beer, not really my ideal "session" beer, but still good.

brian60625 (742) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2012
12 ounce bottle. There was a kick to it, not as smooth as most APA’s. Medium bodied, artificial and blech flavored. Not a pleasant beverage, and it strangely punches above the belt, booze taste-wise. Usually APA’s are a solid genre, but this one was a rocky ride. This is the last time I drink it. Come on, He’brew, I’ve heard you have solid product but I’m still not convinced.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2012
This is a pretty standard APA. Everything from the pour, to the aroma, to the taste and the finish, is very average. Nothing really stands out in this beer. It pours a dark golden color with a decent-sized off-white head. The nose features some dry and spicy hops, along with some earth, rye bread and light citrus. The body is a little too carbonated and spritzy, and that especially shows through in the aftertaste and finish. There is some nice dry, pale and spicy hops in the flavors, balanced nicely with some toasted malt and earth. But again, this pale ale is very average and standard. No feature of this beer sets it apart from any other standard APA I’ve tasted.

nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2012
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting quarter inch of creamy foam. Aroma is toasted grain, spicy molasses, light citrus. Taste is fresh grain, toast, cocoa, and molasses mix. Finish is a big drying resin and citrus. Near-medium body is smooth, dry and sessionable.
