COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe that all other ales pale in comparison to this one. Brewed with pilsner malt, Philadelphia Pale Ale is crisp and hoppy, bursting with citrus flavors and aromas. Philadelphia Pale Ale was named one of the best Pale Ales in the country by the New York Times.

a mild pale - seemed more like a british pale than an APA- probably because I had this cask conditioned. straw colour with a medium foamy head. a mild bitter flavor is prominent but still more malt than hops.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Re-rate on draft ... subtle citrus nose. Mild malt and mellow bitter. Hint of pear? Upgraded a bit from previous review: "Golden orange. Strage tartness. Little aroma. Too light on the palate."

On the beer engine. Thin brown body with an equally thin flavor of caramel in the balt. Somewhat sweet but rather forgettable. A disappointing offering from a solid brewer.

Indra (2594) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Light amber color, partially hazy with somewhat thin head. Some lightly sweet malt in the aroma, but faint. I get a distinctive cidery taste from this beer. The malt is definitely there, but seems to lack any real bitterness to help the balance. Also, this is the first beer I’ve ever had that I thought needed more carbonation. It is smooth, with a light-to-medium body, and the fruity aftertaste is good. Likely this is better on cask.

Copper color, malty aroma, not all that hoppy, but very well balanced, not a whole lot of head to speak of, spicy aftertaste, decent pale ale

Nothing that special or different.

an OK pale ale - bitter but not enough hop flavor for my taste.

PhillyBeer2112 (2517) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2001
Light yellow color, a little pale. Medium head. Clean nose, emphasizing mostly malt. The flavor is heavily bitter with minimal hop flavor (or aroma). Malt presence and body on the lighter side of the style. A little unbalanced.
