Commercial Description

Bitter American is our late winter seasonal beer available from January through March in six pack cans and on draft. This extra pale session ale has lower alcohol but all the flavor and hop aroma you expect from a much bigger beer. Give one, or three, a try.
If you'd been rocketed into space against your will, you might be a little bitter too. Bitter American is our long-overdue tribute to unsung, unwitting heroes everywhere. This American session ale packs a lot of hop and malt flavor into a refreshingly lower-alcohol brew, making it the perfect beer to have on hand when you have a little history to make.

    This was a fantastic pale ale. Not a huge hop note but just enough. The aroma was of glories hops being a hop head I really enjoyed this brew even throw it was a tad light on hops this beer just tasted right and it still had a decent aftertaste from the hops. The low abv also made this a great session beer. All in all I would say this was a great little pale ale.

    Extra Pale session ale contract brewed by Cold Spring for 21st Amendment in a very sharp looking can.
    The lower alcohol content of this session ale makes it very drinkable. Very similar to an IPA with a refreshing palate and slightly thin texture.
    Drank this brew extremely cold, just above freezing and it maintained it's smoothness and full flavor. Has a very hoppy aroma dominated by piny hops with some grapefruit notes. The hop bite hits you right out of the gate followed by some sweet smoothness finishing with a good mellowed out hop bitterness, great balance and slightly dry aftertaste. Could go through a whole six of this very easily.
    Paired VERY well with the curry spiced cookies made with chili powder.
