Pale ale is a true hop-forward ale. It’s one of the leaders in the craft beer landscape, and a reason for the craft beer revolution. These ales fill the middle ground between heavy stouts and classic lagers. They usually present as amber in colour.

Pale ale was originally an ale style originating in the UK. It's a type of beer that is brewed with mostly pale malts for a more equal malt-to-hop ratio. The higher proportion of pale malts results in a lighter colour with good malt flavours. It's also the precursor to the IPA (India Pale Ale) style. Over time, pale ale has evolved through changed brewing practices and levels of hops that are more sought after in beers nowadays.

Different countries make different styles of pale ale. The American pale ale we drink today was developed around 1980 and tends to be cleaner and hoppier, while British versions are more malty, buttery, aromatic, and balanced. This American Pale Ale dominates the pale ale category in Ireland. It's a decidedly more hop forward version than the traditional English pale ale style

Today, the term “pale ale” technically covers several styles of beer, including IPAs. However, traditionally, they tend to be of lower alcohol levels than their much hoppier cousins, the India Pale Ale.
