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.

Hops, definitely. Pine, some lemon, diacetyl notes, and....pear? Some very light-fleshed fruit notes. Like a memory of a melon. Like...pears in butter. Overall, doesn’t mesh, but not bad.

Interesting that they brew 2 similar named beers - the Pale Ale and this one. I had this on tap at their pub. This has a sharper hop bite to it (I guess that’s why the other one is an English pale - a little warmer hop). Very smooth body like thin liquid caramel. Taste has a good balance of sweet and hoppy - the slight advantage given to the hops which would make it a fine session ale for me.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2010 In the bottle. Hazy rich golden color with a medium head and appreciable carbonation. Aroma is floral and hoppy. Flavor is apple/bitter/malty with a memorable bitter finish. Very nice. UPDATE: Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010.

12oz bottle. Served at 45.5° in a pint glass. Didn’t get a chance to try this at the Schlafly tasting. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is vegetal hops, earthy, with a lurking sweet malt backbone. The taste is grapefruit, earthy hops, held together by a honeyish maltiness. The hops certainly dominate the flavor and give the beer a moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is average. Not a bad session beer.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Slightly hazy golden amber with a small creamy white head. Slight floral hop tones with some grainy maltiness behind in the aroma. Mundane malt flavors, spritely grassy and bitter hop character. REsidual bitterness and some husky astringency in the finish. Mouthfeel is light medium, fairly crisp.

Hop in the City: Pine and grapefruit aroma revealed the hops in this beer, but the nose was not near as aromatic as other Cascade hopped beers. Medium body and moderately bitter flavor with notes of grapefruit and sweet malts. The bitterness does linger. Thought this should have had a crisper edge to it.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Hop in the City - inviting aroma of fresh squeezed juice (lime, orange). Medium malt body is nicely balanced and sweet throughout. Became a bit lager-ish as it warmed. Otherwise - good.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours a hazy copper-orange with a full white head. Aroma is floral with sweet malt and rather lackluster. Flavor is balanced with honey, caramel and a piney hop flavor addition. Light to medium-bodied, moderately carbonated with a lingering, slightly bitter finish. Not one of Schlafly’s better beers by a long shot.
