"US Pale" Ale

Category: American Style Pale Ale

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 4.9%
Bright pale amber color. Delicate, citrusy, dank earthy grassy aromas of lemon marmalade on toast, orange cream brulee, floral honey, and pine with a satiny, crisp, fizzy, fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length honeyed herbs, nutskin, and earth finish. A well balanced "old school" American 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.
