Lighter Shade Of Pale. A song, and a draft only release emerging from Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp (#42.) Lighter Shade of Pale is a “session” style American Pale Ale clocking in at a mere 4.2% abv. Decisively lower than a lot of beers emerging these days. Initially, (which is to say for now, who knows what the future brings) this pale ale one one of a few beers debuting at Philly Beer Week in June, 2011.
This pale ale is “triple hops brewed” the real way, with Spalt, Challenger, & Crystal hops. Light & pale malts round out this beer. According to Sierra Nevada’s northeast rep, the first tapping is at Grace Tavern, 6/8/11, 6:30 pm. <Philly Beer Week>
