A moderate, refreshing ale with noticeable hop aroma balanced by supporting malt flavors.
Midwestern Pale Ale is a great aperitif. Pair it with delicate dishes where the dry bitterness can clean up some of the fat or richness.
Also pairs well with oily fish (sturgeon, mackerel, blue fish, marlin, Wahoo and smoked versions as well), meat pies or chicken pot pies and burgers.
For dessert, try pumpkin flan, maple bread pudding or bananas foster.
Pairs well with cheeses like Jack, Brick, Brie, Derby with sage, Leicester, Camembert, Manchego, Emmenthaler or Gourmandise with walnuts.
