4.2% American Pale Ale | 15 Ratings |
American Pale Ale style beer ... almost. In fact, we have introduced some significant style variations including the addition of wheat malt which helps to release a collection of extraordinary fragrances that no one ever would expect from a beer of only 4.2 volumes. This Beer is also characterized by a very persistent foam which allows the aromas to develop in complete tranquility to be enjoyed along with the slightly tart freshness as green apples which is the imprint feature. Also in this beer the hops, Americans, are used wisely and not to violate the palate. This Beer, like any other of our products, it is not filtered and neither pasteurized but follows a patient clarification process at low temperatures which allows the sedimentation and the consequent removal of the biomass produced by the fermentation. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle and produces the typical carbonation. For this beer will observe the extraordinary persistence of the foam that will not leave you during the tasting. Recommended for a drink around 7 degrees and also suitable for fish dishes or asian spicy dishes.
