Brilliant amber color. Aromas and flavors of butter roasted nuts, lemon poppyseed muffin, and slapped herbs with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, charming, long grilled tropical citrus, white pepper, polenta, and radicchio finish. A wonderfully hoppy pale ale that engages the palate.

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.
