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.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap at Side Door Pub in Chalfont, PA. Far more tolerable than the Brawler, but the flavor just doesn't hold long enough to make this a good beer.

closey22 (992) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Golden clear with thick foamy head; slightly spicy aroma Flava is spicy citrusy; feels slightly flat with some bite on the tongue; finishes light but rich grain and hops

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at Philly Airport Marriott. Well, it could be worse. Bright golden pour, well carbonated. Mild fruits, muted hops, and some grain in the nose. Initially bright carbonation but tapers off quickly, urging you to chug. Dry and clean taste, with a lemony thing, some anonymous hops, but a disconcertingly bland impression overall.

ryanscourt (798) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Ok pale ale. Sweet fresh hops,not incredibly complex but pretty simple and enjoyable. Sweet citrus flavor lingers, not much bitterness. Not exciting but average without any big errors.

beerme31 (514) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Light golden color, floral and citrus aroma. Medium sweet taste. Light body, mild bitter finish, average carbonation. Finishes a little funky. Overall pretty good.

reberiii (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2013
Light amber pour from 12oz bottle. 1/2 inch foam, white, with persistent thin lacing. I have to admit, this is the fourth of these Iíve had, and it gets better each time Iíve had it - from being a non-repeater to, "sure, Iíll have one." Bitter hop lingers in the mouth for minutes after, and the palate is reasonably weak, but it is crisp and refreshing. Citrus hop nose.

jcos (1592) - Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle from Jay during Caps watching, April 2nd, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of light hop.
Taste: LIght hop, decent balance, some citrus..
Palate:Llight body.

Summary: An okay APA that does that job, but not really to the level I expect of APAs in terms of bitterness. Does have a light abv.

hfmejias (825) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Appearance: Golden in color about a finger of white head; not completely clear a bit hazy. Aroma is citrus. Very light taste a bit bitter and citrusy, that makes for a refreshing beer, very easy to drink.
