Hazy light gold color. Aromas of lime pith, orange blossom, hints of almond shortcake, and honeydew melon with a satiny, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, refreshing, medium-long pineapple, mango, and peaches on pound cake finish. A a fruit-forward, creamy APA with snappy bitterness and a juicy appeal.

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.
