The Civil Life American Pale Ale


Brewed by The Civil Life Brewing Company
St. Louis, Missouri USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 15 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5%
American Pale Ales hold a special place in the Halls o Beerdom. Immigrant brewers definitely broke with some Old World traditions, but after so many generations, APA has become a tradition unto itself. Strong, smooth and elegantly simple, featuring pale malt, a dash of caramel, and pungent New World hops. Crisp grain sweetness balanced by fruity hops. Freshly-baked whole wheat bread, tall grass, wild flowers, ruby red grapefruit, black currant, cantaloupe. Enjoy our uniquely nuanced patriotic ale. Place your hand over your heart and recite: MY PINT TIS OF THEE! GREAT MALT OF LIBERTY! OF THEE I DRINK!
