Before she called Avondale home, our darling Miss Fancy the elephant was a circus marvel traveling by train from city to city. When the movement of the train failed to rock her to sleep, she often indulged in ales to calm her nerves and pass the time.
American Pale Ale (APA)
Another beer style that started in England, the America Pale Ale can best be thought of as a slightly less hoppy version of an American IPA. Since there are many variations in both of these beer styles, however, the distinction is fuzzy at best.
Ranging in color from a pale gold to copper-colored, this style usually features a medium malt profile - usually with bready or toasty flavors, instead of sweeter malt flavors - that then develops into more IPA-like hop flavors. Like the American IPA, the hops in an American Pale Ale are usually grown in America, and generally have fruity, floral, piney, and citrus flavors. Whereas hop flavors are important in the American IPA, the APA should provide a nice balance of malts, hops, and bitterness - a good beer style to experiment with hop flavors.
Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees in a pint glass, tumbler, or beer mug.
