|American Pale Ale|
Dry tasting, light, hoppy beers that range in colour from gold to bronze. American hops (such as Cascade and Mt. Hood) are usually used to provide a high hop bitterness and a fresh, floral aroma. The bitterness is usually balanced by a malty profile. British Pale Ales are likely to be similar but not as strong or hoppy as the American style. The style has become extremely popular over the past 25 years in the US, due to micro-breweries.
