Syracuse Pale Ale

12 oz single.
I’ve always liked Middle Ages but they pulled out of GA a long time ago (at least I don’t see their beer any longer in these parts), this bottle came from my brother-in-law in upstate NY – cheers Rob.
Slightly hazed, orange gold body with a soapy looking, one finger head. Head is light and frothy in appearance. Lace is minimal.
Carbonation seems a little low.
Tastes are fairly straightforward grains with a hint of bitterness in the back end. Light soapy tastes compliment the bitterness to yield a drier than expected finish.
Surprisingly I get a yew lemon notes in the beer which add to its lightness and make it pretty drinkable. Light lemon persists all the way through to the finish and the aftertaste.
An interesting beer in as much as it seemed a little more complex that I was expected. I was left with an impression by the lemon tastes and a feeling that this is a paradoxically simple and slightly more complex beer wrapped up in a single package.
