1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I intend to visit this brewery soon and try some of their other products. This Philly Pale Ale however Paled in comparison to other ales I have tasted and at that price forget it.
Still planning on trying out all of their stuff. Being from Philly i have to give em a try.

Not a very good pale ale. Tasted pretty flat. I couldnt even tell there was alcohol in it. Too sweet tasting as well and it didnt smell good at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Perfumy nose that I didn't like. Hazy brown color and foamy rocky had. Light tight spicy end, otherwise nothing special here. Too perfumy.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Misses the mark. Some overpowering fermenting fruit flavor, apricot or other, spoils the experience. Unbalanced on the malty side and weak. Try again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Acidic nose. Light red color. Little lazer of a head, leaving laces on the glass. Weak bitter citrus taste.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours dark gold, hazy with a weird mix of extremely energetic large and small bubbles; 1/2-inch white head buzzes angrily and disappears about halfway through. Aroma of yeasty bread dough, maybe a hint of orange peel. Tastes of flour and flowery, copper-ish hops, with extreme aluminim can/metallic finish, perhaps some maize?? Palate is watery, lightly fizzy, and tinny. Imagine white bread soaked in carbonated water. Sorry, Yards, but truly horrible.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The beer poured a dark yellow color. The head was minimal. Zero lacing. Minimal aroma. What was there was a faint maltiness and citrus hops. The taste was OK, if a bit bland. Some bitterness, with even less malts. Boring!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled ant the brewery. This was pretty boring. Had a slight bitter flavor but that's the only thing it had going for it. Tasted like a weak English Pale

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light yellowish brown in color. The taste was slighty malty with minimal hops and almost a cinammon quality. Overall it is very light with some sweetness followed by a dry finish. I checked with the server twice to confirm it was the pale ale. Perhaps it's the recipe, but not what I'm accusotmed to with pale ales.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Difficult to pour. This batch is really wild-almost like a half that fell off the truck. I did not expect this from a bottle. Tasted ok, but can't really nail down. Bread-like with a wierd aftertaste.
