This, to me, was about as pale an ale as a pale ale could sale. Makes no sense i know. For an ale i felt there was a real lack of that kick that an ale should have. Thumbs down guys.

On draft at the Kegerator for Derby day. I remember this beer being uninspired, but this time I was impressed. Word is that the brewers reformulated Philly Pale Ale. Very fresh - kind of a little brother to the Yards IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Citizen's Bank Ballpark, called Yard's Philly Ale. Dark golden color, rocky white head. Mild hop aroma, bittering hops taste. Rather average mouthfeel.

Tap at Andy's. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Fruity nose. Low hops and refreshing. Lawnmower beer?

Mellow and very well balanced; malts are thick and sweet and hops are fresh, spicy and slightly woody.

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.
