American Pale Ale Beer

American Pale Ale is a type of beer that is characterized by its light colour and hops flavour. American Pale Ales are brewed with American hops, which give the beer its floral, fruity, and citrus-like flavours.

American Pale Ales also have a slightly piney and resinous flavour, which comes from the American hops used in brewing. These beers are typically medium-bodied and have a moderate to high level of carbonation. American Pale Ales are perfect for enjoying on a hot summer day or with a hearty meal.
