Sour Pale is a dry, tart, and uniquely aromatic American Pale Ale. A sour mash technique is used to milk a delicately sour flavor from lactobacillus bacteria naturally occurring on barley grain husks. A traditional Northwest pale ale hop profile provides a light bittnerness with citrusy flavor and aroma to produce a truly intriguing nose: a flowery sour. The malt profile is light on residual sugars, leaving a clean, dry finish.

A hazy yellow brew. The nose is lightly lemony, grains of paradise and wheat. Quite still but very refreshing. With a very tart note and some citric hopping. More white wine dryness than bitterness. Smooth, simple and a little vinegary.

Tap @ BEER... Poured pale, hazy, straw yellow with a thin head. Biscuit and cracker-like malts with some tartness towards the middle to the finish. Not acidic or in you face, just some citrus and tartness in there with the malt. Hops seemed non-existent in this one. A good sunny afternoon drinking beer.
