AMERICAN PALE WHEAT

An easy drinking ale blending the styles of pale ale and wheat beer. The malt bill

is based on wheat extract and flaked red wheat and will provide a light copper color and ample head retention. American Pale Wheats are hoppier than traditional wheat beers and American Cluster and Liberty hops lend a moderate hoppiness. BRY-97 Yeast ferments a clean, ale flavor profile without the banana and clove phenols than its German counterpart has. This beer is very drinkable and is most enjoyable fresh, just after bottle conditioning.
