American Pale Ale (APA)

Originally British in origin, this style is now popular worldwide and the use of local or imported ingredients produces variances in character from region to region. American versions tend to be cleaner and hoppier (with the piney, citrusy Cascade variety appearing frequently) than British versions, which are usually more malty, buttery, aromatic, and balanced. Pale Ales range in color from deep gold to medium amber. Fruity esters and diacetyl can vary from none to moderate, and hop aroma can range from lightly floral to bold and pungent. In general, expect a good balance of caramel malt and expressive hops with a medium body and a mildly bitter finish.

ABV: 4.5–6.5% | IBU: 25–50 | Glassware: Pint Glass (or Becker, Nonic, Tumbler)
