Brilliant old gold color. Delicate, sourish, tropical toasty perfumed aromas and flavors of egg sandwich, lemon herb biscuit, roasted root vegetables, and pine needle with a satiny, bright, effervescent, off-dry medium body and a tingling, elegant, long finish with elements of grilled baguette and romaine, dried citrus and stone fruits, grapefruit sorbet, and pepper finish. A nice savory hop forward APA with a nod to England.

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.
