Cloudy golden amber color. Odd aromas and flavors of singed spices and alpine herbs, grilled root vegetables and citrus, and menthol mint with a supple, bright, dryish medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-length finish with impressions of spicy bread pudding, ginger and lemongrass, and spinach paneer finish. An interesting New England pale ale with lots of exotic spices.

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.
