COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 2 row caramel and euro-pils malts to create a rich amber color and medium body. Chinook hops from the Pacific Northwest provide fragrant hop aroma and are balanced with Columbus and German Perle hops in the finish to create a flavor that is unique to Allegheny Pale Ale.

Clear gold, off-white head. Light aroma, a little hoppy. Strong bitter, more like an IPA than a pale ale. Grapefruit and floral flavor. Bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy white head. It smells just lightly hoppy with some light floral notes over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit thin and weak, minimal leafy hops, light bitterness, fairly thin caramel malt base. Not quite the malt bill that does it for me, it comes across as a bit sweet, with a slightly husky note towards the finish. Lighter bodied but still a bit clingy on the finish with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a little bland and thin, even for an APA.

On tap. Cooper/ dark orange color with thin head. Slight grapefruit and malt aroma. Taste is similar and ends bitter. Decent.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose is corn flakey pale malt, not much else, Tastes of pale malt, mild hops, and a watery finish.

Crisp and refreshing. Pleasant hop aroma and dry bitterness. Almost a pilsner-like quality to this one.

Cakes (380) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
12 oz bottle. A darker looking pale ale. A little "beefier" - more filling than most pale ales. Not at all watery. I think that the reviewers have been rating this a little low by the look of their scores. This is not a run of the mill pale ale. A nice caramel flavor with euro-pils malts to create a rich amber look. A foamy head with nice lacing. A good looking beer.

boxofrane (2259) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma smells like a biscuity lager. The taste is biscuit, dry, light grain, almost no hop. This blows, honestly.

jjgmd (1511) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small wispy head. Nose is grainy and somewhat malty. A bitter grainy taste without much in the flavor department. Finish is bitter and ends rather boringly. Quaff Score 6 / 10

zgaier (1462) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a white head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is bittersweet, malt, hops, and caramel throughout with a bitter, medium finish. A bit boring and can use more flavor

Pretty decent ale with an extra hoppy flavor. Only got a sip but wish I had more. Very refreshing.
