For fans of craft beer, a recipe like this one is likely very familiar. The classic American Pale Ale gave rise to what we consider craft beer today, and many define it to be the original American craft beer style. Perfectly balanced malt and hop character paired with a clean fermentation profile gives this recipe rich flavor, moderate bitterness, and an approachable alcohol content while maintaining supreme drinkability and satisfaction.
