Whatever your thoughts on American politics, American cars and American (insert anything else here), you have to be impressed with the American approach to good beer. The past few decades have seen the American pale ale play a huge role in shaping the baseline for good beer. But what happens when an Englishman makes an American pale ale?
Ross Kenrick of Bacchus has taken the West Coast approach to hops, and the English approach of letting malt character shine in a pale ale (not to mention a few English hops)… and jammed them together. A light caramel colour, the Bacchus APA boasts biscuity sweetness, while still bursting with citrusy and floral US hops and displaying bitterness in the finish.
