The style that led the National Microbrew Renaissance, Placerville Brewing Company's medium bodied Pale Ale is brewed with fine tuned blend of two row and crystal malts, and uses a combination of Chinook and Cascade hops. The balance of just the right maltness, cascade aromatics and chinook bitters give this ale a flavor and aroma that will make other California pales “green ” with envy.
