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.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Bottle: Courtesy of Duane via trade. A rather impressive looking beer. Pours a transparent amber with a creamy white head with excellent retention. Great lacing. Can’t find anyting to knock the appearance. Aroma is a little light. Creamy malts with some light pine hops. Flavor is creamy and malty up front with light citrus. Finish is moderately hopped with pine and light grapefruit. Could use a little more hops in the finish to balance all the creamy malt up front. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Weak aroma holds this brew back a little.

No head at all, pretty mild with the hops, but very drinkable, I liked it. I could have it as a regular beer.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2005
A decent if unremarkable pale ale. Wonderful appearance as it poors a clear copper color toped by an off white head. The aroma is nice if a little light. Malty with some earthy hopp notes. Flavor is nice and blanced. Initial malt sweetness follwed by grassy hop notes. Medium bodied beer and a good one for everday consumption.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2005
bottle. very mild APA but still quite good. made for an excellent thirst quencher but the very mild hop bitterness was a surprise after all of the others in this catagory.

This is one of Schlafly’s better beers. Nice mild hops bitterness and good balance. I think its available in the bottle year round now.

Draft at the bottleworks. Nice balance between the hop bitterness and the malt. After this I’ll be trying more APA’s.
