COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Pale Ale is our version of the iconic West Coast-style Pale Ale. Our brewer’s decided this beer should be all about the hops. Therefore, we brew it without any crystal malt. In choosing to brew a beer this way, we are left to focus solely on the expressive nature of the hops they choose for this beer.

ACHops (1248) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2012
On tap@ Noble Fir. Pours thin slightly cloudy pale straw yellow with head that thins out quickly. Aroma is punchy tart hops. Taste is big grapefruit and pine hops that last throughout. Not really any malt to speak of... and I don’t mind. Delicious, simple, sessionable.

65cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours orange with small white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel and fruits. Taste is similar, slightly earthy and herbal though. Short bitter finish. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice session beer with very moderate bitterness, so it’s quite difficult to dislike it.

Mon voisin d’en dessous a raison; il y a bien de la pêche dans cette bière dont les arômes sont parfaitement bien exprimés par son étiquette estivale. légère et délicatement fruitée. ça se boit très très facilement. Quel dommage que août soit si loin !
