COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grateful creates a fresh spin on the American Pale Ale tradition. A strong citrusy, resinous aroma from the American hops leads into a light body with subtle malt flavor. Grateful is a sessionable brew at 4.7% abv.

Comes out of the tap a clear amber with a thick and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, mainly fruity with a malty undertone. Malty and fruity flavor is a little stronger than the aroma, not complex but pleasing. Texture is creamy smooth, firm if not fiery fizzy. I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to try it.

jrob21 (2464) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle from the mix 6 at beer run. Pours a light yellow color which is a little unusual. A touch more hops than your typical straight pale. Grassy and herbal still so pretty true there. Faint hop and light grain aroma. Finish has a little pepper spice to it. All you dead phish heads will go crazy for the name here bit it is lost on me. An ok drink either way.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured clear amber hue with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate aroma of citrus hops and soft malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft. Well balanced flavor of hops and malt with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft drinkable brew.

12 oz bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild citrus, grass lightly toasted bread. Some earthy notes, but this was fairly nondescript.

matty (174) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Aroma is primarily fresh hops. Medium body, malt seems to overpower the hop taste. Finish is again the malt over the hops. Not great, but drinkable.
