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.

WillemsUrenkel (639) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2014
On draft at an Olive Garden in Willow Grove, PA. Dark golden in the glass, nearly amber. Fine white creamy head. Don´t know, why they iced the glass inside. Starts malty, light but definitiv present hop herb, light citrus fruity, pleasant light bitterness. And I added on my noticepaper the word crisp before I read it on the commercial description. Nice one!

Transfer from BA review on 5-25-12 - Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The brew was served with a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. The head faded rather fast giving a light amount of lacing on the glass. Smell – The aroma is of bread, citrus and malt. The heaviest citrus is of lemon zest nature. Some other floral and spicy aromas are in the nose as well rounding it out nicely. Taste – The taste is of a biscuit and malt up front and is mixed with some lightly sweet and citrus hop notes. Toward the middle it dries out more with some lemon and spice entering the taste. While the biscuit flavor lessen as the taste goes on, the lemon and spice flavors get stronger as the flavor moves to the end. At the end a bitter lemon and spice flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – Light in body with a higher level of carbonation. Good for giving a refreshing and easy drinking brew. Overall – Very easy to drink with a drier bitter lemon and spicy flavor. While the bitter that it leaves on the tongue is just so-so it is a good session brew for a nice summer day as it has good flavors (other than the bitter aftertaste) and a great mouthfeel.
