Brilliant deep amber color. Aromas and flavors of dusty root vegetable, tomato focaccia, roasted nuts and fruits, and crayon and bouillon cubes with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry medium body and a tingling, captivating, medium-length finish with notes of peach and lemon marmalade, rye cracker, pepper, and arugula and parsley finish. An earthy, understated pale ale with nice table appeal.

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.
