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.

Cakes (383) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Tasted this on tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival Pours a dark golden yellow color , leaving spots lacing along the glass. Biscuity malt aroma with hints of grass and straw with some graham cracker malt and a nice hop presence. Lower end of medium body with a nice pilsner/ bicuity malt backbone and a decent hop presence for the style. Clean and very drinkable with a crisp subtle hop dry finish. A Citrus explosion.

Koelschtrinker (12038) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
Mild bitterer, grasig hopfiger Antrunk. Hopfen und Bitterkeit halten sich dabei die Waage mit leichtem Hang zum Bitteren, später verstärkt sich dieser Eindruck. Etwas grasig bleibt das Ganze, spritzig. 10/9/9/9//9

Leighton (13395) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle drank on the mountain during CPS’s stag do. Pretty basic stuff with some dry pale malts, light bitter pine needles, grass, cereal and grains. Light in body with average carbonation. Lightly bitter on the finish with some further grass. Simple, decent APA.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden color. There’s a little over two fingers worth of white-colored head. The head itself is pretty rocky and retains well. Some soapy streaks of lacing are left behind. S: The hops here are more evocative of British varietals than ’Murican ones. I get light orange peel, tea leaves, earth, flowers, and apricot from the nose, primarily. The fruity characteristic comes more strongly when allowed to open up some. I really like that there isn’t much malt to get in the way - it’s there, don’t get me wrong, just muted. While this isn’t the kind of hoppiness to wow me, it definitely has an intriguing smell to it. T: The first swallow is surprisingly bitter in a good way. Tea leaves, orange peel, and flowers hit the palate immediately, right before a slight upsurge of sweet malts finish it off. There’s nothing explosive or over-the-top here: this is just a really solid session beer. M: Holy crap, this is creamy for the style. It still retains the crisp dryness I love in a good example of the style, but the creaminess does make it touch too full in body. Doesn’t really matter - this goes down like water. Carbonation pricks the tongue slightly. O: Yards brewed a really good golden ale here. Maybe it’s a bit bland, but that’s forgivable. This is a beer that’s meant to be consumed by the 6-pack, and I’d much rather down a 6-pack of this than, say, Coors Light (I’d also rather catch herpes than have to down a 6-pack of Coors Light, but that’s neither here nor there...)

Slight hoppy aroma. Citrus flavor in your mouth. A little bitter going doing and very nice hoppy after taste.

Bottle. Tastes like doughy malt, dry pine hops, grapefruit, light fruity candy sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky pone, grapefruit, and light sweetness.
