Pours clear with a couple inches of white, wispy foam. Retention is average with no lacing.
Aroma bursts with citrus and floral hops notes. Some spice is behind those initial scents. A backbone of sweet malt can be detected. Not a big sniffer but pleasant.
Taste is malt sweet up front, mellowing throughout. Citrus and floral hops take the mid while spice hops hits late and lingers.
Moderate body with medium carbonation. Surprisingly almost chewy at times.
Tantalizes the senses with the goodness of the hops and malts but just not enough. Both are a little light, just a touch bolder would increase the experience ten fold. Still a quality offering that is easy to drink and partake on hot/humid nights. Enjoy!

Our Yazoo Pale Ale bursts with spicy, citrusy hop aroma and flavor, coming from the newly discovered Amarillo hop. The wonderful hop aroma is balanced nicely with a toasty malt body, ending with a cleansing hop finish. Made with English Pale, Munich, Vienna, and Crystal malts, and generously hopped with Amarillo, Perle, and Cascade hops. Fermented with our English ale yeast.
