COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

This is one of Schlafly’s better beers. Nice mild hops bitterness and good balance. I think its available in the bottle year round now.

Draft at the bottleworks. Nice balance between the hop bitterness and the malt. After this I’ll be trying more APA’s.

Afine taste of hops upon my first sip. Not expecting this, This beer goes great with a batch of chicken wings.

Clear and amber with little head. Nice cascade and malt aroma. Some particles in suspension. Great body with a smooth finishing bitterness. Clean.

MrBunn (2849) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2005
A very nice offering from Schlafly’s. Pours a nice honey color with a pretty decent head. Aroma is singular, hops and grapefruit? Taste is a nice mix of hops and grain that blends really nicely together. Crisp.

4.1
HerrMord (2) - USA - MAR 7, 2005 does not count
Certainly better draft than bottled, it is still a pleasant experience either way. Pours a lovely burnt orange color with a thick white head that doesn’t dissipate right away. Starts smooth and sweet almost fruity and finishes in a well balanced hoppy bitterness with an almost smokey under tone. While perhaps not the best beer on the shelf, it makes a very refreshing every day beer. Best fresh; does not age as well as an ale should.

3.6
Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Pours pale orange with a nice layer of white head. Sweet orange rind, pine and floral hop aromas, and some lemony yeastiness. Solid hop presense in the taste with a bit of malt warmth and a lingering hop finish. Mouthfilling but not heavy.

2.5
Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle. I felt like maybe I had an old batch or something, as I bought this from a small town gas station. Almost sour aroma. Tasted like it was old or gone bad, I may have to try this again on tap as this was nothing like what I expected from reading other reviews.

2.5
Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Golden color with a thick, creamy white head. Kind of a musty, earthy smell. Slight grapefruity hop flavor, but more bland than anything else. Watery too.

3.4
TAR (2794) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Golden peach. Dense, rocky, and stable dusty-white head. Decent nose of freshly cracked malt, earthy hops, and minerals. Slight peppery airiness. Fuzzy, somewhat creamy carbonation. Full-blown malt flavors cover the palate, emitting fresh baked bread and earthy hop notes. Husky, lightly toasted biscuity malt flavor develops at the core, amid a firm mineral overlay. Uplifting burst of acidity is completely suppressed by a bizarre chemical-like harshness and sour yeast. Pungently grassy hop flavor has a subtle pine accent. Dry, chalky-tinged finish is briefly salvaged by a blanket of rich toasted pale malt flavors and earthy hops, but is eventually ruined by the reemerging harshness and bizarre yeastiness. Peculiar, but drinkable.
