From Pennsylvania - "Keystone of the Nation" - comes a truly classic American pale ale with a robust flavor. Brewed with a combination of delicious hops and lightly toasted malts, this amber brew will have you singing the virtues of liberty and independence.

bottle... dark gold, too much copper, ugly watery bubbles... overly malted, way to sweet but the malt is off, wet dog toffee, mulched grass, meh, gets worse as it warms... metallic, grassy, malty, too much again, I think this is old, either way its nothing special

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is light, hoppy. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, a little astringent, with a sharp, bitter finish. Worth trying once, but I probably won’t seek this out again.

Capa (2542) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Copper with a white head. Aroma is medium citrus and earthy hops with light grass, and light caramel malts. Medium, crispy body. Flavor is citrus, light grass, and medium biscuit malts. Finish has a nice hop bite. Very straightforward APA. Easy going with a proper amount of hopping to make this pale a go to beer.

jmm635 (966) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Pours light amber with a medium sized white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus, soggy malts. Moderately sweet for a pale. Nothing to write home about.

TheHopster (997) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2011
(Bottle) Thin head with over-abundant CO2. Flavor is of poor quality malt with a metallic flavor and sour hops as if were held in a green bottle and left in the sun. Unfortunately, it has no such excuse. Better categorized in style as Imperial Mule Piss. Stoutragious, a wise choice to omit selection for the Weiss Cup challenge.

MadIndian (2702) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Amber pour with mild citrus and pine aroma. Taste of grapefruit, rye and malt. A Medium body with a dry finish. It was ok.

alobar (3286) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Orange copper pour with a white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and hints of caramel. Medium body with a citrus flavor with hops, pine, and some caramel sweetness. Rather decent beer.

Suttree (5767) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Clear orangey copper, with a frothy beige head. Smells like a nice mix of citrus, pine, a touch of honey, and brown sugar. Flavor is a nice mix of piney hop bitterness and smooth, sweet, toasty malty. Pretty simple, but tasty.

robgibbens (425) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2011
Nice bronze amber color. The aroma is earthy, leathery, roasted. The taste is mildly bitter. 50 IBU seems high to me. The palate is lingering bitterness. Not bad overall. I enjoyed it.

This is under rated and coming from a non fan of this brewery. This beer however is what it says it is and nothing more nothing less. A classic American Pale Ale with an amber pour with a pillowy lacing head. The aroma is grass, hay,wheat, Schuylkill River and everything else Philly, soft pretzels, cheesesteakes, piss at City Hall. And yet it has a somber finish, forget about the taste. Classic Philadelphia and if you don’t like like, take a hike.
