COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t fight it. Spite it! A Chicago bile messenger’s favorite part of the day, "Alley Time" is a reward for life on the streets. This beer is brewed with Pilsen Malt and a single addition of Simcoe hops. Perfect for sharing those expletive-heavy sotries with a cold one in hand. Alley Time can be any time, but it can only be one place! and whether you’re a corporate lemming or an interpretive dancer, find an alley and make it yours.

Pours a hazy light golden yellow orange pour with no head. Nose is citrus and hoppy with more subtle pine and resin. Taste is citrusy with a predominance of sweet peaches , offset with some delicious hops. Finish is citrusy with a nice well balanced hoppy ending. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Can, much thanks to Dave. Pours out a mostly clear golden color with a decent white head. Aroma is of fresh citrus, bread, pine and some floral notes. Taste is of orange peel, light citrus fruits, some cereal, bready malts, underlying citrus fruits

nuplastikk (4334) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12oz can. Pretty legit new school Pale Ale. Big foamy head on top of a hazy yellow-tan body. Clean golden malt backbone. Really displays the Simcoe hop well. Dry straw tones reminiscent of Amarillo, but with some of those tropical melon undertones that are so nice. Delicate but bold. Impressive beer, would love a six pack of it.

dmac (3998) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
12oz can via trade. Poured a super hazed gold body under a larger white frothy head. Aroma of rotting citrus, cat piss, lemon, tropical fruit and earth. Body is medium with lighter carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor has a slight smokiness for some reason, additional notes of clementines and nectarines, rubber, eraser shaving, lime, grassy hops, earth and bark. Interesting enougn to make me want another.

12oz can from dmac. Pours a hazy pale amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus zest, sweet grain, pine, and herbal hops. Taste of light citrus, grain, grapefruit zest, and hints of pine. I liked this a lot! Really refreshing and crushable! I think I drank the can in 5 gulps.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans, enjoyed at home on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Appearance is a cloudy bright gold with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, light hay, but really it smells more like juice than beer. Taste is also juice like, really heavy on the pineapple flavor, finishes with a light bitterness. If I was rating juice this would get good marks, but I'm not, but it's still not bad. Just not really ale-esque.

Can from Frank. Thanks. kinda cold, drinking from the can. a moderate citrus hop nose with some honey malt notes. no clue what it looks like. taste is initially balanced between a sweet malt flavor and a moderate hop bitterness. a slight fruity not to the flavor. can’t quite place it. hops last into the finish to help dry out the beer, but still some sweetness. the hop flavor seems really light and muddled. decent beer, just not a fan.

HonkeyBra (3344) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
12 oz. can. Golden pour with a small white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and pale malt sweetness. Flavor is quite bitter with mild malt backing. Some pine, some citrus, some bread notes. Alcohol is apparent, but not too apparent. Lively carbonation with a medium body. Finishes long and bitter. This is pretty nice, close to sessionable, and enjoyable.
