Pale ale

Pale ale is generally a light beer, similar to a light mild ale, only usually dryer and with a distinctive hoppy taste. English pale ales are golden or copper coloured rather than pale, as the term pale was used to distinguish them from dark porters.

India Pale Ale is a British pale ale made for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong.
