Pale Ale

Ahhh, the pale ale. Loved by all; whether you're English, American, Belgian, or Earthling, chances are there's a brewery near you making their own take on the pale ale. It can mean different things to different people: an American pale is decidedly more hoppy than its British cousin. The Belgians draw inspiration from the English Pale but use their own yeast, which leads to some spicy and fruity notes that aren't generally found in the UK variation.

Yet, while the Pale Ale is its own distinct style, it's worth noting that it can come in many forms: American blonde ales, Belgian saisons, or even the French bière de garde are pale ale versions. No matter the style, they're generally an easy drink with an interesting array of flavour profiles that find themselves pairing perfectly with food.

Try Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Flying Dog Doggie Style, Ilkley Pale or Thornbridge Chiron & Jaipur for some fabulous examples of this type of beer.

American Pale Ale is smooth, modern, hoppy, fresh and easy-drinking, and the ingredients vary from brewer to brewer and region to region giving us lots of variety. It lends itself to be dry-hopped, showcasing lots of fabulous American finishing hops. 

English Pale Ale tends to have more malty, buttery flavours than its American counterpart, and focuses more on the bittering properties of hops. Also highly drinkable, we’d happily argue that no session is complete without an English pale ale.

Saison Ales were traditionally brewed in summer for workers in the fields, but are now available year-round. Extremely refreshing, Saisons are often brewed with fruit, herbs and all sorts of other seasonal additions. Perfect if you want to try something a bit different.
