COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

notalush (4913) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours a clear light amber - rather fizzy pour - moderately sustained head - nose is crisp/crackery and doughy/bready, with a fair amount of earthy, woody, lightly peppery hops in the mix - carbonation is full but frothy in the mouth - body is on the thin side - up front, the flavor has a light, brisk, mildly tea-like character - the middle and finish, however, are fairly dry and crackery - finish is moderately bitter - hop character is woody, lightly spicy - easy drinking but fairly flavorful - a good example of the style - not bad, Larry, not bad.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club.Slightly hazy amber with a big stable frothy off white head. Pleasant citric and floral hops aroma with pine needles notes and a bit of malt. Flavor has some malt sweetness with a bit of caramel, citric hops and a nice lingering bitterness, a bit piney. Medium-bodied, maybe just a bit over-carbonated. A good well-hopped easy-drinking APA.

beerandbeyond (693) - ISRAEL - MAY 12, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear amber/copper color with a small white head. Nutty aroma, with some piney hops, ripe fruit and caramel malts. Juicy malt flavor, with sharp piney bitterness and some marmalade. Long bitter finish, kinda dry, pretty balanced and quite drinkable.

mcberko (6704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle, bonused to me by BrewtopiaofPJ (thanks Mark), pours a clear copper golden with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty standard, with crackery crystal malt and very mild floral hops. Flavour is almost non-existent, with metallic crystal malts and muted floral hops. Not see what the point is of making such a tasteless and boring beer. Not good.

Bottle at home, from Astoria Bier and Cheese. ($2.75) Light caramel malt underneath a restrained floral hoppiness. A bit of citrus, not much else. Average.
