COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all other ales pale in comparison to ours. Dry hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive. Philly Pale, as it’s better known, is crisp, hoppy, and bursting with citrus. Philadelphia Pale Ale was named one of the best Pale Ales in the country by the New York Times.

Pours dark yellow. Aroma of hops, citrus, slight fruit. Finishes crisp, slightly dry. Mediocre.

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.

Perfumy nose that I didn't like. Hazy brown color and foamy rocky had. Light tight spicy end, otherwise nothing special here. Too perfumy.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Misses the mark. Some overpowering fermenting fruit flavor, apricot or other, spoils the experience. Unbalanced on the malty side and weak. Try again.

YogiBeera (2480) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Acidic nose. Light red color. Little lazer of a head, leaving laces on the glass. Weak bitter citrus taste.

maltdog (618) - Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2003
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.

boto (1879) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 13, 2003
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!

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2003
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

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2003
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.
