England has their “Extra Strong Bitters,” America has their “American Pale Ales,” and now Cebuanos have their own version of this classic, full flavored but balanced ale. Showcasing the careful marriage of pale, biscuity, and lightly roasted malts with mildly bitter, citrusy, earthy hops, the pale ale style is one of the mainstays of breweries worldwide.
Our version of this classic style is a balanced but flavorful brew with a local twist. Radiant copper in hue, the addition of carefully selected, high quality imported speciality malts provides a crisp malt backbone with bready and caramel overtones, but a full pound and a half of hops per barrel—including an obscenely, irresponsibly large aromatic late dry hop addition during secondary fermentation—provides a good amount of balancing character and a gorgeous hop boutique with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, and mint. Pairs well with poultry, earthier and nuttier cheeses, and tangier, spicier cuisines. At 5.7% abv, you won’t find more flavor in a more drinkable package!
