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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Draft at Craft. Wow, the RSD is high here, and I will resample this one next week. Pour is dark straw toward copper with nose of heavy Simcoey hops, sweaty female asscrack aroma, plus caramel malt, florals, and peppery. Tastes hoppy, on the sweet side, with a light and not very complex palate at all, and very unbalanced. After the nose, the flavor was a letdown, and i wonder why I sensed Simcoe when Cascade is the main hop here. Not bad, just not as good as the aroma would lead you to expect.

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.

ReggieDunlap (3052) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours a hazy light amber with a medium white head. Aroma has some citrus and spice with lightly toasty caramel malt. Flavor is earthy and tangy with some spicy hops and toasty malt notes...slightly sweet up front and tangy bitter towards the end. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a dry finish.

JoePeesie (857) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange brown with a big white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste are of earthy hops and bready malts. Nicely balanced and solid for sure, but not something I'd seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy gold into a pint glass. Bright white micro head with good retention recedes leaving soapy lacing. Mild sourdough and resin aromas. Sweet caramel and candy corn upfront turning to a sour, bitter resin finish.
