Strong Ale - English

Bigger than a Pale Ale yet smaller than a Barleywine, the English Strong Ale is a rich and complex beer. Many examples are unfiltered and bottle conditioned. The color tends to land somewhere between amber and reddish copper. English Strong Ales usually end up as a bold mix of fruity, estery, and malty. Hop character can vary from mildly bitter to a full blown with a bold hop flavor and aroma. Similarly, the alcohol level varies and can be quite noticeable, with a hint of solvent possible.

ABV: 5.5–11.0% | IBU: 40–60 | Glassware: Snifter
