Old gold color. Aromas and flavors of spiced mango and pineapple, herb toast, and pepper with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, long finish with notes of roasted root vegetables and citrus, watercress, and rye toast finish. A robust, wonderfully flavorful and hoppy 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.
