Beer added by: maxpower on 09-09-2002

Our flagship Pale Ale is a smooth, balanced, copper-colored session beer with mildly spiced flavor and aroma from the East Kent Goldings hops. The bready, lightly caramel malt complements the hint of fruitiness contributed by the London Ale yeast, making it satisfying and authentic; the perfect flagship beer for Schlafly.

Sixteenth century brewers created amber beers by using a form of coal called coke to roast their grains. Coke burns hotter and more steadily than wood without imparting the foul odors from coal. It allowed brewers to produce caramel malts that were paler alternatives to the common brown porters. At about the same time, Flemish migrants introduced hops to English beers and soon this ale became the chosen style of England from the mid-16th century until the end of the 20th century. Today, brewers outside England have adopted the Pale Ale and made it one of the leading styles of the American craft beer movement.

A very nice representation of a pale ale. I am not usually very huge on pale ales, as they are a bit bland for me. I usually gravitate toward IPA's and DIPA's. This however is different, it is still very smooth and drinkable, yet has a bit more flavor to it than most. Great place to start if you are just getting into craft and/or hoppier options.

Will seek out and purchase again.

* Side Note: These are now available in cans, which may make this my new go to camping/floating beer.

This brew is Amber in color with a white head of medium thickness. Clear. The aroma is ready, moderately malty, and is backed with a faint hop scent. It isn't as intense as I would have liked, but it is a solid and drinkable brew. Balanced.
