Strong Ale - American

The American Strong Ale is a medium amber to deep copper or light brown colored, strong, full-flavored American ale that challenges and rewards the palate with full malty and hoppy flavors and substantial bitterness. The flavors are bold but complementary, and are stronger and richer than average-strength pale and amber American ales. A fairly broad style that can describe beers labeled in various ways, including modern malty-but-hoppy beers that aren’t quite in the Barleywine class. Generally not as strong and as rich as an American Barley Wine. More malt balanced than an American or Double IPA with more hop intensity than an English Strong Ale style would tolerate.
