Brew Review-Yard Philadelphia Pale Ale

Yard’s Philadelphia Pale is described as a non-traditional pale ale because it features some unique aspects.  It is a crisp and hoppy ale with a strong citrus nose and taste. The pour leaves a hazy golden brew with decent lacing.  The malt base of light crystal or carapils malts balance out the strong lemon and apricot citrus flavors.  Despite its description, I didn’t find it all that hoppy.  However, I still enjoyed drinking it.  It’d make a great summer beer and is very sessionable for other occasions.   For someone trying to break into craft brews and pale ales, this would be a good place to start.
