COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Greenville Pale Ale is a traditional American style Pale Ale, rooted in the Pacific Northwest brewing heritage. The light colored medium bodied ale uses whole flower cascade hops with all natural two row barley malt. This produces a light Pale Ale that explodes with rich full flavor. This refreshing ale has an immediate floral-citrus taste that comes from using the cascade hops.

jmm635 (846) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Yellow-orange in color, clear, has a creamy white head. Hoppy aroma with a light malt balance. Smooth and sessionable; enjoyable yet forgettable. The style doesn’t do much for me.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft at North Star on 5/20/11. Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thin lasting ring. Streaks of spay lacing left behind. Earthy aroma with lots of piny hops and citrus along with a caramel malt presence. More hop forward in the nose than expected with hints of pine needle, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Looks and smells pretty good. Medium bodied but lighter than expected and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. Subtle crisp hop bite up front with earthy pine and very faint citrus but I was really let down at how weak the hops were given the nose. Slight lactic creaminess and a prominent malt backbone. Overall this beer wasn’t bad. It looked and smelled pretty nice but the flavor was a bit of a let down. Quaffable and refreshing in this warm weather but sort of bland.

On tap, Look is pale lager with a nice creamy head. Smell is a little sickly, almost putrid but in a nice kinda beery way, heheh. Bitter first taste. Has a sort of weird fruity or sterile something going on here. Almost plastic or artificial, certainly unique. Yes, a strong APA fer sure.

thicksuds (408) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Solid brew, nice hoppy flavor, nice aromatics as well, thick enough that it had a nice body and flavor to it, not coming off the least bit weak or watery, I was pleasantly surprised.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 8, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Notes of citrus and pine and earth througout. Some light malts and caramel, too. Very well balanced. The hops and the malt play an equal part and compliment each other very well. Not a flavor explosion, just a great, easy drinking, session beer.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Serving: Draft at Catch 54
It pours a deep gold color with a small, white head. The nose has notes of pine, slight citrus notes, a bit of caramel, and a bit of earthiness. The flavor highlights the use of hops, but not overwhelmingly so. The pine and citrus notes balance well with the caramel and pale malt notes. Light to medium in body with average carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink, this APA is a good every day brew.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of generic hops and generic malt. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy dense tan head that diminished and barely lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Ok lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of generic malt and generic hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt and hop finish. Very boring, generic, uninspired APA.
