In the early 1900’s, 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 style’s characteristic bitter finish. This ale is well balanced with spicy citrus notes from the yeast & dry hopped for a fruity aroma.

Tasted on tap at brewery. Nice amber color with white head and good lacing. Strong floral hops aroma. Taste is not near as bitter as the aroma would leave you to believe. Low bitterness for a pale ale with a crisp and effervescent. I taste a hint of vanilla in the aftertaste. Tastes different than most pale ales but I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (7119) - 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 aren’t 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 can’t 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.

@Weilands Market in Columbus. Hazy dirty amber with pillowy head that drops to a head cover, curtains of lace. Taste is caramel malt with hay and toast, joined midway through by assertive hops that, while strong, allow the malt to continue to share. Well conceived and quite drinkable.
