COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the highest peak in the continental United States, this pale ale is amber in color with a faint malty flavor and dry, hoppy finish. Gold Medal - 1996 Great American Beer Festival - No peak too tall or beer too cold!.

This beer is considerably heavier than their San Joaquin Golden Ale, but still a light beer in general. It had a great tangerine aroma with a malty flavor.
