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 itís 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.

10.31.04 12oz bottle. Medium amber with big foamy head. Lots of citric hoppiness in aromas donít remind me at all of EPA. Flavor is grapefruity hop dominated with a grainy malt background.

Pretty nice beer. A little hoppy for me, but tasty. Itís worth a try. Drink at the old City Tavern in Philly...kind of adds to the mystique.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Gold. Very resiny, lots of pine in the hops. A bit too much on the hop side, malts donít really balance it out properly. Overly fizzy, some carbonation problem.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2004
This is their new American Pale Ale grain bill, so donít let old ratings deter you from at least trying it once. Clear golden, fizzy white head. Nose has nice scents of light pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, with a slight caramel note. Hops dominate here with malt having a lesser roll in trying to balance. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, hoppy dry finish. Tasty and very drinkable.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Poured with a large overflowing head, has a mild lemon-citrus flavor, good on a hot day but really is just average. Overly carbonated with a fizzy mouthfeel.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Peach/grapefruit duel in aroma. Unfortunately, grapefruit wins. Some nice cereal flavors in the middle--malt, wheat, oats, grainy middle and finish. Medium body. Not the greatest melding of flavors but passable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Royal Stumble. A bit low in alcohol but still very tasty. One of the few highlights of this wacky event. More hop bite than usual EPAís. Crisp.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Poured a hazy golden yellow with a huge, huge white frothy head. Lots of particles. Citris hoppy and fruity armoa. Tastes of apples and lemons mixed with malts. Different tasting - a little weak but overall not too bad.

TheBeerGod (5532) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Hazed amber with a small white head. Aroma is steeped with citrusy hops. Thereís also a subtle sweetness behind the hop aroma. The taste is a nicely balanced mix of citrus fruit, mostly orange peel and lemon, along with a decent malt backbone. Mouthfeel is moderately bitter and a bit oily. Finish is expectedly bitter with only a minor amount lingering. Good beer!

Yards recently recreated this Pale Ale from scratch, and Iím happy to say that this is now a great beer, worthy of the other great Yards brews. If, like me, you tried this one before and didnít care for it, try it now! Itís very flavorful, though pretty bitter, and, if nothing else, the aroma will knock your socks off...
