Description 

Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.

A classic Pale Ale, this is one of the most influential beers of all time. Ken Grossman invented the American Pale Ale style with this hoppy, clean and eminently quaffable brew.
