When does a Pale Ale become a Golden Ale and vice versa?
For me this is more of a Pale Ale, crisp and refreshing.
It pours a bright straw and smells citrus sharp.
The malts are super light and gentle.
They’re runny honey and shortcake biscuits, a dusting of Demerara sugar and a few peppercorn crumbs.
And the hops are zippy, pointy nettle stings and lemon rind, a little peach juice and a spoon of bramble jelly.
All this makes for a finish that’s dry, bitter, and long lasting.
All the things I’d attribute to a Pale Ale, but really, who cares as long as it tastes good, right?
