Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of roasted grains and corn, herb peppercorn muffin, pine sap and lime leaves, and grilled grapefruit with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-long finish revealing elements of watercress and pepper finish. A nice hoppy session ale.

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.
