American Pale Ale
American pale ales range from deep golden to copper in color.
The style is characterized by fruity, floral and citrus-like
American-variety hop character producing high hop bitterness,
flavor, and aroma Note that “floral and citrus-like American-variety
hop character” is the perceived end, but may be a result of the
skillful use of hops of other national origins. American pale ales
have medium body and low to medium maltiness. Low caramel character
is allowable. Fruity-ester flavor and aroma should be moderate to
strong. Diacetyl should be absent or present at very low levels.
Chill haze is allowable at cold temperatures.
