This amber colored pale ale was the first beer we brewed together, so it was only fitting to name it FIRST BITE. Generous additions of American hops, light body and a dry.finish give it plenty of flavor and aroma while still remaining highly drinkable. YOU GOT BITTEN

Pleasantly surprised with the crispness of this pale ale. Nice malts along with assertive enough hop profile. Totally crushable.

After a really good stone apa this was not as good but it is decent. Malt heavy and clean but with that off mineral taste that seems to come with German hops.

Pours a deep orange Amber, thin slightly off white head. Aroma is bread, biscuit, earthy malt, faint pine. Flavor is bitter earthy malt, pine, minerals, stale bread, malt bomb. Fairly hoppy, but really aggressive malt profile.

A nice easy going Pale Ale. Not overly hopped up but has a decent malt base and a good balance. light toasted malts, caramel, bit of citrus hop and a light pine note. Sweet malts up front with a crisp, clean and moderately bitter finish. Nicely done.

reebtogi (5076) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some tropical fruits and light caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted brew with a nice balance of flavors and is recommended.

ben4321 (5085) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/30/14, Bottled 9/4/14

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, with some clean resiny hops, toasted bread, and a little caramel
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper-orange color with froth of beige head and heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, bready, leading to a mid-plus bitter, clean, hoppy finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, smooth and rather drinkable, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This one mixes the resiny hops nice with the clean pale malts, not to mention that it is a heck of a good looking beer in the glass. At 5.5% I could drink a ton of this beer. This is another nice one from Spider Bite.

Bottle... Murky amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a hoppy blend of tropical fruits and melons with a touch of pine. Full-bodied and abrasive with busy carbonation. The flavor offers no identifiable malt essence, but provides some very nice, fruity hop bitterness. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter, raspy, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
