Minutely hazy deep amber color. Earthy aromas and flavors of chocolate nut muffin, citrus yogurt, and hint of stewed vegetables with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, carefree finish conveying suggestions of lemon curd on rye toast and peppered greens finish. A nice savory pale ale that will shine at the table.

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.
