Gold color. Hoppy aromas and flavors of juicy mango candies, apricot jam, tangerine, and fruity panettone with a satiny, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, amusing, medium-length finish manifesting touches of toasted pine nuts and dried apricot and pineapple finish. The Pale Ale for those that adore the aromatics of American hops, but desire a less bitter sipping experience.

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.
