4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the most popular brews in the region, Philly Pale is an excellent, well balanced beer. Nice citrus taste, goes down smooth and easy. Slightly hoppy, but not too aggressive. The perfect beer for kicking back and having a few with friends while you enjoy the game or the weather or just life in general.

Poured a golden color with aromas of dryness, light bitter hops and some light malt. Flavors are the same with light hops and dry aftertaste decent but basic.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the best pale ale in the world. Also it is better than most IPAs. Supremely drinkable. Amazing aroma. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pale ale can either be too dry and too bitter, or it can be a perfect thing to drink. This falls somewhere in between. It’s bitter, to be sure, but not in a way that makes it hard to drink. Beyond that, though, it’s light in color and in flavor and doesn’t do much else. Smells floral.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde to bronze in color with a flimsy head. This APA is more assertive than I was expecting, starting off with a raft of bitter hops in the nose with some nice dryness to it. The body is assertively hoppy with a good bitter backbone and some interesting fruity and twangy notes. Malt backbone is there to contribute some balance and not much else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale amber with almost no head. Nose is spunky and cider-like. Taste is lightly hoppy, but on the sweet side. Refreshing, albeit simple.

Draft at Bella Notte pizza in Pittsburgh. Just an average ho-hum pale ale in an saturated category of meidocre efforts
