The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.
The Pale is a heavily hopped West Coast style pale ale bursting with a bright citrus and fruity hop complexity. It has just enough malt presence to allow the loads of hops to shine through, including a generous dry hopping of Mosaic. This crisp hop forward beer has a dry refreshing finish.
