This was the brew that I got as a result of Nicole not being a huge fan. I had a few different Yards brews at a tasting in May which impressed me.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: If you click that you are not 21 on the Yards Brewing Company website, it brings you to the PBS Kids website for Barney.
Random: I tend to prefer IPAs to regular Pale Ales, so my expectations for this weren’t all that high.
As you can see, this brew was served in fine glassware (read: plastic cup). This brew was on draft at the Beer Garden. I’m all about trying local brews, and Yards is a Philly brew, so there’s not much more local than this. This poured with a one finger, fluffy, white head. It was a light yellow color with a lot of visible carbonation and was slightly cloudy. On the nose, it smelled like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. It was also very carbonated. On first taste, there’s definitely a lot of grapefruit, but not pine like an IPA would have. The brew also leaves some significant lacing on the glass. This goes down pretty easy. The finish is bitter with some grapefruit as well. This isn’t bad, but not a brew that I would search out and it gets old pretty quickly.
