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.

"Have now cancelled my beer club subscription as the beers I was receiving were of no interest to me and I was tipping out most of them."
