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 its 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.

Bottle... Crystal clear golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. Wispy, cumulus lacework. Yeasty, floral aroma with notes of biscuit and butterscotch. Perfectly balanced flavor, but almost entirely nondescript except for an earthy, herbal taste. Medium-bodied and a little oily with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not offensive, but not at all special either.

Grapefruity and hoppy, Yards Philly Pale Ale is a pretty solid APA. Ive had better, but this is very good. Very nice start for this brand.

This is my go to beer. It is light and hoppy with a little bit of fruitiness. The alcohol is low 4.2 and the hops are not overwhelming but this beer is perfect on a warm day.

This golden colored pale ale looks great in the glass creating a thick full head that develops into a light lace that lasts until the end. The hops make their presence known both in the taste and aroma. A very good beer that deserves more respect in the South Jersey area than it gets.

Wow, I dont know if I got a bad bottle or what but this pale ale taste like sour grapes or rotten fruit. Actually, its nasty, bitter and has an awful finish of metal or something. I am giving it a three for flavor just because it has a unique nasty ass taste.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Big on carbonation this beer yields a head like Bonds does a bat. Hoppy like a bunny I really like the new recipe over the old. The switch was warranted and I think the new style will help Yards reap the rewards its due. Easy drinking ale.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Faint citrusy-orange aroma. Pours a decent gold with zero lacing and a light head that dissipates quickly. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy to match the nose. Palate is slightly watery and diminishes almost immediately

The aroma is well balanced . Nice hop character in the flavor. I thought this was quite nice and extreamely drinkable.

Bottle. I tried to pour this one as slow as possible and still had to wait for the head to reced after pouring 1/3 of the beer. The aroma was a strong citrus hops smell. Flavor was almost smokey as it tends to be with a large amount of american hops. It finished quite nicely with not an unpleasant aftertaste. With less carbonation it could be a great APA.

This had more head to it than any beer Ive ever drank from a bottle. Yards needs to ease up on the carbonation. That being said...lets get to the nuts. The aroma was very poor, kinda like a rotting lemon. Flavor was lacking, also...it was very sour. This is unfortunate....I got a gift sampler pack with two or three Yards products. Could hardly choke back any of them. I wont be buying their beers....and would steer others away, too. I must sadly say that if you want better taste....buy a macro like Bud or Coors.
