New River Pale Ale

New River Pale Ale Wine Details

Description: This American style pale ale is a medium bodied, golden colored ale made from pale, caramel, Munich and wheat malts. The proportions of each grain contribute to the color, sweetness, maltiness and body found in the New River Pale Ale. These characteristics are necessary to stand up to the four generous additions of hops added both to the kettle and the secondary fermenter. This is hoppy beer! New River Pale Ale is crafted in small batches using only 100% American ingredients.

Varietal Definition
Pale Ale:
Pale ales tend to be fuller-bodied with a more assertive character on the palate the standard bitter in a English brewers portfolio. In England it is generally a bottled, as opposed to being sold on draft. Despite the name, pale ales are not pale but, in fact, more of an amber hue. The original designation was in reference to this style of beer being paler than the brown and black beers which were more popular at the time of the styles inception. In the US pale ale styles have become one of the benchmarks by which craft brewers are judged. The US version of pale ale is crisper and generally much more hoppy. Indeed this style is well suited to assertive domestic Pacific Northwestern hop varieties that give the US examples inimitable character.
