COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Floral, faint hops, and medium bodied malts. Flat and fairly weak. Not the best representative of an APA. Says ’dry hopped’, but its more ’dry flavored’.

garrison (749) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
From a twelve ounce bottle (part of a six pack) purchased at "Liquor Direct" in Covington, KY - This one pours an orangey-amber brew with a maltier-than-expected aroma and tall, rapidly fading off-white head of foam. Tastewise, it’s a tad sweet for a pale ale, but it tastes good!

markgugs (86) - Wood Ridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2007
poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet A: Poured a purty copper orange. Decent head went away fairly fast, but leaves a nice oily lacing with each sip. S: citric, floral aromas, very faint malt T/M: Hops are right in your face with this beer. It’s explodes with very juicy bitter grapefruit hoppiness, decent toasted bread maltiness, and yet it isn’t balanced nearly as well as masters of this type of beer. Decent medium-bodied, slightly chewy at times. And leaves an oily, bitter, lingering finish. Decent. D: Pretty easy to drink beer, the alcohol is medium at 5.5%, it’s a good representation of an APA.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bought as "Expedition Reserve". Clear copper, with a decent sized white head. Nice floral hoppy aroma, kind of a mix twixt resin and citrus. Full bodied, with earthy and floral flavors nicely mixed. A touch of caramell and toffee balance out the bitter.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a quickly disapating head. Nose is lightly fragranced with malt and florality. Flavor continues the light profile and beer is fairly watery. Not much going on here. Thanks to tjthresh for the bottle.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Sep 06 bottling (Expedition APA). Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, grapefruit), trace yeast (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Almost a good quaffer, but there is just a bit too much lingering sweetness in the finish, which becomes kind of annoying. Not bad though.

Mostly just average. Not much in the hops department for an APA, but a decent beer overall.

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Come on everyone, this is a pretty good pale ale! One of the best brews to come out of Schlafly in my opinion. Pours nice dark golden yellow with great carbonation. Mild flavor to appeal to a wide variety of tastes. This brew is some on here call a "session" beer...meaning easy to down a sixer without a second thought!
