COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tröegs Pale Ale is an American style Pale Ale that is aggressively hopped with Northwest Cascades and balanced with Belgian crystal malts to create a hoppy, copper-colored crisp ale. An excellent example of a classic American Pale Ale.

It’s Pennsylvania APA night at my house and next up is Troegs APA. Beautiful Amber nectar with picture perfect head. Very different from the Stoudts. Much more hoppy and bitter. Not as citrusy or sweet but definitely has a lipton lemon sweet tea undertone. Very nice beer. I’m going to call this a very close race. I’m going to give this round to Troegs. Excellent beer but just by a single strand of hair.

Pours a beautiful clear amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some floral hoppiness. Taste is pretty sweet with plenty of malt, hops with notes of grapefruit, citrus and caramel. Mildly bitter for an APA. Mouthfeel is very full, round, creamy and chewy. Nice lacing on the glass. Quality brew.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a light golden color with a quickly dissipating white head. Good hoppy aroma [similar to Tröegs HopBack Amber Ale], although less floral and less bitey. Good hop flavor, not real peppery in the middle but has a small hop bite at the end. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel, but a tad on the watery side. Thanks again to Warrior.

This is a great seesion Pale Ale. It has a very crisp crystal flavor, kind of like Goose Island IPA, along with some breadiness I like in Pale Ales.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Poured a crystal clear gold with a snow white head that retains fairly well. Aroma is strong of pale malts with a slight burnt grass aroma also. Body is clean and crisp with even carbonation. Flavor is very nice with malts shining through and hops adding just the right amount of bitterness. Crisp, refreshing and flavorful is always a winner. Thanks Bert!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2004
Appearance: clear amber color, big, creamy tapioca-like head. Aroma: soft, but bright and fruity, good hops, sweet malt. Once on the tongue and down the throat, it’s smooth sailing. Perfect balance & integration. Medium-bodied, with a tasty, long finish. An excellent session brew, a nice pale ale, indeed. So far, I’ve yet to meet a beer from Troeg’s I didn’t like!

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2004
Light copper, quite clear, with a thin veneer of a head. Aroma is sharp grapefruit and some biscuit malts. Quite sweet to my surprise, bit of a bite on the grapefruit hop finish. Not bad, but didn't do much for me.

DocLock (8526) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
Bottle from Beer Yard tasting event in Wayne, PA. Amber colored, huge aroma of hops, citrus, and slight yeast. Tastes extremely hoppy, but well balanced. Finishes very hoppy, but with a final burst of malt, slight sweetness and crispness. A world class pale ale. (It's getting to the point where there are so many really good pale ales, IPAs, and double IPAs that I don't know which ones to drink (and buy) first)). I guess i shouldn't be complaining!!

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2004
Floral hop and sweet malt in the aroma. Copper bodied, generous head and "webby" lacing. Fruity caramel and bread malts and a nice dose of orange peel bitterness along with pepper and old brown shoe. Very enjoyable!

Good assertive hop aroma with some caramel malt in the background. Poured with a good cream colored head that lasted about normal time. Clear light amber colored beer. Good classic american type cascade flavor with a crisp clean bitterness. Not much caramel malt flavor as it should be in an american pale. A veer good rendition of the style.
