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.

DrSilverworm (9100) - 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"

Ferris (8949) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle - Malt, grains and a mild aromatic hop. Clear amber with nice medium head. Very dry and bitter but not much flavor. I do get some sweetness but again nite much flavor. Not what i would consider a session ale.

3fourths (8800) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2012
bottle. stiff and rough caramel malt and browned apple nose, two things I absolutely can’t stand in beer. I’m perplexed that they call this 5.6% a session ale, which I wouldn’t have guessed, and that it’s been dry-hopped - also would not have guessed. it’s more of a run of the mill amber ale with stewed oatmeal and barley and red apple skins and crunchy bran cereal. cracklin’ oat bran amber ale. funny enough it smells and tastes like a lot of Mikkeller beers.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth. Pours clear medium copper with off-white head that laces well. Nose is caramel malt, hops, mild funk and florals. Tastes hoppy, crisp, with caramel malt, some late florals, and a finishing dryness with pineapple and grapefruit.

BVery (8685) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Rich orange pour with a smaller white head. Pine resin hops, slightly sweet, well balanced. Not bad.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Light amber, average foamy head. Lightly toasty caramel, moderately hopped, nicely balanced-- fits the bill as a tasty session brew.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours an almost clear amber brown with a thin to medium sized white head. Big bitter hops on the nose, toast and a bit of malt. Smells a touch burnt oddly enough. Medium bodied, the weird burnt thing from the aroma comes back here, moving into a bitter malt and toast area. Bitter finish with a bit of malt and toast. Drinkable at least.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a bitter finish.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden to light amber hued body with a small white head that lasts with some lace. Aromas are bready, malty, biscuity and lightly grassy. A touch of grapefruit and citrus. Flavors are medium citrusy, orange, tangerine and grassy hops. Some bready and toasty malt with low caramel. Lively bubbles, somewhat dry finish. Not bad.

slowrunner77 (7872) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"Think i had this a bit past it’s prime, as the other reviews on here are older than mine, and this "hoppy" session brew had a rather weak, uninspired hop profile. Light citrus and bready malts, average across the board."
