About the English Pale Ale

The English Pale Ale would simply be known as a Bitter in England and the name of the style actually originates in North America. Therefore most of the beers of this style are actually brewed outside the British Isles. Its color ranges from gold to amber and exhibits good clarity and head retention. Its alcohol strength ranges from sessionable to moderate. Its ingredients are typically English in origin and offer a variety of aromas and flavors that can be hoppy, earthy, fruity, buttery, and malty. Comparatively, the English Pale Ale has more malt in the balance and less alcohol than the American Pale Ale.
