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.

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 doesnít do much for me.

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.

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.

12 Oz. Can. Poured a Hazy amber/orange with a little white head that didnít hanged out too long. Aroma is mostly citrus, floral notes. Taste bittersweet, not that many hops, tones of caramel. Light bodied, maybe a bit watery but overall an OK drinkable beer.

This is a great local beer and I canít believe I havenít rated it already. Itís a solid, mild pale ale that must be enjoyed fresh/cold since it is non-pasteurized. Taste is very well balanced between sweet caramel malts and cascade hops. The challenge I have run into with this beer is that, depending on the time of the year, if it isnít fresh and hasnít been stored 100 % cold by the retailer, the beer is ruined.

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.
