COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The FBC Pale Ale is a cross between two styles. The caramelized malt tones and the lower carbonation levels are in the English style, and the bitterness and color are more American. The aroma is derived from a blend of British hops, which gives the beer a fine rounded aroma. The British hops are far less assertive than their American counterparts, which lead to a more agreeable aroma profile for a British Pale Ale.
