Pale Ale - Belgian / Farmhouse
The Belgian Pale Ale is a moderately malty, somewhat fruity, easy-drinking, amber to copper colored Belgian hop-forward ale that is somewhat less aggressive in flavor profile than many other Belgian beers. The malt character tends to be a bit biscuity with light toasty, honey-like, or caramelly components; the fruit character is noticeable and complementary to the malt. The bitterness level is generally moderate, but may not seem as high due to the flavorful malt profile but the recent trend tends to make them hoppier. Fairly similar to pale ales from England, typically with a slightly different yeast character and a more varied malt profile and with less yeast character than many other Belgian beers.
