Golden amber color. Interesting, tropical, savory aromas and flavors of pineapple-peach-pepper salsa, toasted hawaiian bread, and honeyed chives with a supple, tangy, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish with shades of pine cone, peppery greens, and kiwi finish. A fun combination of savory and tropical hop notes.

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.
