English Pale Ale Recipe

February 13, 2013

Beer Recipes, General posting

A nice pale ale is always appreciated.  What I like about Pale Ale’s are that they are so easy to drink and most of the time you even non, “Craft beer lovers”, still like them.  This one isn’t too hoppy and just leaves you with something that is refreshing.  If you make this beer now, it will be ready to drink towards the end of March.  What that means is it is a perfect beer to gateway you into Spring.

Having some aromatic malt in it is going to give a malty nose to the beer.  The crystal malt is of course going to give it some sweetness as well as some color.  The hop profile is is well balanced giving you bittering, flavor, and aroma.  All around it’s a well balanced beer.
