Light copper, fruity, slight caramel, snappy, dry
In 1792 Pale Ale was all the rage among India’s British colonists. Today, the modern British Pale Ale is a light copper beer of moderate strength. Bitterness is usually moderate as well -British brewers prize balance and subtlety- but the beer has a zippy hop character at the finish. Chuckanut’s Pale Ale doesn’t disappoint as it is modeled after the true British style Pale Ale.
Grilled meats, especially steaks, pork chops, and lamb chops are very good with pale ales. Caramelization is the key, and the beer has the bitterness and carbonation to lift the fat. British pale ales are hard to beat at lunchtime they seem to be ready to handle almost any sandwich. If you want to up scale your Pale Ale enjoy it with our Hummus Plate or Burgers.
