Description 

Our newest year-round canned beer is brewed with lots of Two-Row and red wheat with a little specialty malt for a beautiful golden hue. A blend of Centennial, Citra, Chinook, Cascade and Crystal hops give the beer its flavor and aroma. This Chicago Pale Ale is meant to be a supremely drinkable brew for those who love hops. Magnificent California hop aromas play in perfect harmony with this brew’s extremely satisfying finish.

This pale ale pours an exceptionally clear, light golden color with a pure, white head and lasting lacing. The nose is pretty balanced between malt and hops. There is a light grainy malt character with a hint of toast that accompanies some candied melon, grapefruit, and orange hops. Pale ales don’t have to be huge on hops, but this hop character unfortunately comes across a bit muddled in the flavor. There is candied melon and sweet tropical fruit with a hint of pine, but none of this character bursts forth and has to be deeply taken in to distinguish the characters. Up front this beer is just a sweet, fruity hop note that blends into the malt.
