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.

Bottle. Amber in color with a one finger head, obviously filtered. Nice citrusy hop aroma, not too strong. Flavor had some decent hop bitterness to it. I was a bit disappointed with the malt base though; not very much too it. A simple APA, nothing spectacular.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate cour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Well, I was tricked into thinking that my "Expedition Reserve" was some sort of special limited release by Schlafly -- but no, come to find that itís just their standard boring American Pale Ale is a different bottle with a fancy label. I loath when breweries do this -- shameless marketing. When you sell a Reserve, it had better actually be that. OK, about the ale. I was fooled by the aroma (which actually has nice hoppy nose). The color isnít bad either. But the flavor lets me down every time. Very dull on the hoppy flavor. For Schlafly beers overall, I just donít like their palate or mouthfeel. A bit too fizzy for me, and itís the same with every beer. Now that you know my opinions about Schlafly, you should also know that I drink their beer quite frequently (Reason: Iím in St. Louis, and I refuse to drink Budweiser unless Iím watching a Cards game). By the way, GO CARDS! WORLD CHAMPS 2006!

Amber/Copper in color with a thin long lasting white head. Copper metallic iron nose taste is initially sweet, creamy then goes metallic to rusty. Good.

Good body and bitterness from this pale ale. Light on aromas, but the taste compensates for any shortcomings with a healthy spice and herb contribution from the hops. Even better is the rustic, bready, grainy nature of the beer, carrying many sweet caramel malts to a drying finish. Full and balanced -- a great beer from Schlafly.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 From the tap, served in a standard bar imperial pint glass. Poured a hazy orangy, copperish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Had a nose of floral, grassy hops with a touch of herbalness, and sweet caramelized malts. Nice light carbonation and a crisp, dryish and smooth lightish medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant APA taste, floral, herbal hops with a hint of fruitiness, a soft bitterness, caramelized malts, towards the end a light grassiness comes out and a dry herbal, grassy and bready finish, good simple APA drinkability. In my opinion, one of Schlafly better brews, tasty, balanced and very quaffable. One final note, I realized that some people want to call this a renamed Expedtion Reserve, but it is not, the ABV for is 5.9% for the Dry-hopped APA and their is a different malt. yeast and hop recipe used.

Golden yellow with a thick white head. when a 12 oz bottle was poured into a 16 oz glass. Head held together throughout consumption. Hops come though in both aroma and taste. Very drinkable.

KUEric (904) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 14, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Pours a light yellowy gold with a thick fluffy with a hazy carbonation along the top layer. Head goes away fairly quickly. Smells of bananas, citrus and floral hops, bread dough, grapefruit. Flavor is nice. A little more malt in the flavor than on the nose. Smooth creamy texture, and an overall nice beer.

Orange/amber with ample off-white head. Grapefruit, caramel, malt, spice. Medium body, gentle carbonation. Some bitterness and spice in the taste. Unimpressive.
