Revisit this classic American-style pale ale as it reaches middle age — it hit the scene 36 year ago when most beer was light and flavourless. Brewed using a hefty dose of fruity and piney whole-leaf hops, the bitterness is nicely balanced by the mix of bready and caramel malt. This brew is “finished” in the can or bottle in the same style as Champers. The brewer adds a sprinkle of fermentable sugar and yeast to the beer, seals it up and lets it carbonate the natural way.
