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.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2011
THOUGHTS: Nice and pretty well made, but noting all that special. Decent balance and fairly easy to drink. Packed with flavor for a fairly low ABV beer. Not complex, but pretty well put together. Really hope the start can more of their styles. TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear at first and then hazy by the bottom of the can, light brownish orange with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma wasn’t as intense as the flavor. It had very light caramel and grain; moderate citrus hops; and lighter pine hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, moderate to heavily bitter and lightly acidic with an average to long duration. There was citrus hops, ceramel malt, pine hops, grapefruit, lemon and orange hops. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and sticky on the lips with moderately fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly metallic finish.

Medium sized, rocky white head with god retention and a surprisingly nice lace. Clear copper orange hued ale, nice lookin. Nose is ripe with peppery hops, citrusy, fruity and hint tropical. Body is lightly medium, nice carbo level. Nice orangey flavors with a lightly sweet caramel malt backing, spicey and fruity, little lemon and faint pine. Dry, citrusy finish, even a little juicey. Nice APA! Can from Suburbinliquorstore, newark DE.

jmm635 (855) - 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 (417) - 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 (1998) - 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.
