In the early 1900ís, Portsmouth, OH, was known as Peerless City, USA. Continuing the tradition of excellence, our Peerless Pale Ale is highly hopped with Cascade and Pearle hops for this styleís characteristic bitter finish. This ale is well balanced with spicy citrus notes from the yeast & dry hopped for a fruity aroma.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has some hops and peaches, though it is quiet bland. Taste is damp with hops. Palate is a bit thin although also oily. Overall a boring pale ale.

Pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of floral hops, fruit and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hops aftertaste. Average overall.

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours a pale clear gold with a white head that leaves a sheet of lace in the glass. Light aroma and flavor. Notes of bready malts, tangerine, light florals, straw, grass, and apple. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Not bad but not much to it.

Bottle. Floral orange malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Dark golden yellow with large head. Strong metallic orange malt and peel flavor. Okay but the metallic notes arenít pleasant.

It looks cloudy with a copper/golden color and a medium white head. The aroma is equal parts hops and malt. The aroma is bread, citrus, nuts and something I canít put my nose on. The taste is somewhat even. It is more sweet than anything but it also has a bitter hint. It has a medium body with a somewhat creamy texture. The finish is light bitter and sweet. This is a damn good beer and seeing as how it comes 1.5hr south of me I can probably put up the money for bar price.

Bottle: Cloudy, light brown with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, bread, hay aroma. Taste is bitter, earth/grass, caramel. Overall, rather stale and bland.
