Hazy pale light gold color. Aromas of raw green onion, wet grass, mango skins, and grapefruit pith with a soft, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, delightful, brisk Wonderbread crust, orange marmalade, fresh thyme, and fresh grapefruit juice finish. A hop-forward, tropical pale ale in a juicy, summertime style.

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.
