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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Draft at Washington street Ale house: Nice red amber color. Aroma was a small amount of hops. Flavor was awesome amount of citrus and floral hops, nice bitterness to it. Good texture, pretty smooth. Over all a very enjoybale beer. I wish it wasnt served so cold, it probably would of been more enjoyable. ******UPDATE*****Just had it on draft at the brewery even better! Classic hop flavor, overall a solid beer! Thanks to all the guys at the house!

Heathen (1500) - 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.

On tap at Cromwells. Red/amber color, generous frothy head and very nice lacing. Citrusy hops aroma. Strong orange flavors dominate up front, with roasted malts in the background. Resiny hops win out in the end with a crisp and dry finish. Preferred this to the pilsener.

desurfer (1242) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Tap at the brewery. Medium amber body with a pillowy beige head that quickly dissipates into specks of foam littered about the top. Aroma of cascade hops. Flavor is great; just the right amount of hops balanced by some doughy malts. With so many brewers trying to be the most extreme, this beer is a wonderful reminder that one need not be wild to make a great beer. It is sublimely satisfying and superbly drinkable. A true winner!

A nice fairly average beer that is easily drinkable. Decent dark orange pour w/ a white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is subtle w/ some sweetness & hops coming through. The taste is sweet upfront & finishes a bit bitter. Has a good soft mouthfeel. Not bad!

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2006
On tap-at the Brewery. Clear copper color w/a slight off white head. Nice aroma of hops w/a little bit of roasted malt. Had a nice flavor of hops without being overpowering. Had some roasted malt flavor as well. Only a slight metalic aftertast kept it from being rated higher. Long finish.

On tap at washington street ale house. Poured a light copper color with small white head. Aroma was hops and a roastedness to it. Well balanced, had a bizarre funk in the finish.

Derek881 (1027) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Poured from a can into a narrow glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat hazy deep copper-orange color with a good-sized foamy off-white head with good retention, but lighter cling and lacing. Its aroma had subtle notes of pine and citrus along with a bit of grainy hops and yest, but was a bit underdeveloped overall. The taste was modestly bitter with notes of citrus and grain, some floral components and had a slight sour touch. It was a fairly lively beer with good carbonation and a dry mouthfeel with average thickness.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Darft @ Cromwell’s Tavern. Pours a golden/copper color with a huge frothy white head. The aroma citrusy hops with some mild grassiness. Flavors are sweet clemetine oranges, with some light malts and a light, resiny hop finish. A solid APA.
