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

12oz from the bottle. Sent to me as an extra from jtclockwork... Iím impressed. I popped it while updating my cellar tonight... and after not rating anything for over a year, this is what brought me back. A very nice Pale with a fresh hopped, citric finish. Iíll have to try more of their products.

12oz brown bottle. Poured out a hazy amber colour, thin and low sitting white cap with no lacing in the glass. Aroma has some fruity and sweet notes with citrus. Taste has caramel malt with citrus and pine notes. Mild bitterness. Light bodied. An easy drinking pale ale, a bit on the malty side.

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.

drsandman (927) - New York, USA - AUG 2, 2015
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.

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 (5420) - 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.
