Bright gold color. Interesting, fruity, floral aromas of spiced peaches and apples, apricot vinaigrette on greens, and lilacs with a supple, tangy, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, medium-long orange marmalade on rye toast, radicchio, kiwi relish, and pink pepper finish. Sort of a hybrid between an American and Belgian pale; very tasty nonetheless.

American Style Pale Ale

Despite their name, pale ales tend to appear amber in color. They range from 4.5-6% in alcohol and feature crisp, full-bodied flavors and aromas. U.S. versions of pale ales are crisper and feature a higher hop profile than original English versions of the style. Pale ales have become one of the benchmarks by which craft brewers are judged in the US. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Goose Island Green Line Pale Ale, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
