Beer pick of the week: Denver Pale Ale

Denver Pale Ale

Great Divide Brewing Company

Denver, CO

5.6% ABV

This English-style pale ale is an alternative to the hoppier American versions like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Nice floral, grassy hop aroma and flavor balanced with a mild toasted malt backbone and a biscuity tang. Hop bitterness is medium and carries through into the crisp, dry finish. The active carbonation contributes to excellent head retention, and the medium body is perfect for quaffing. A satisfying beer to accompany a summer barbeque or tailgate party.
