Type: American-style Pale Ale
Why it Works with Celebration Appies
The Chase My Tail Pale is a clean, fresh beer, but it also brings some flavours of citrus and malt to stand up to the flavours in the dish. It’s easy drinking but plenty flavourful at the same time.
The artichoke hummous brings a unique flavour, but the pale ale is able to balance it out nonetheless. The beer also stood up nicely to the spicy wasabi devilled egg, able to cut the spice and refresh the palate.
Pale Ale Pairing Tips
When pairing a pale ale with your meal, finding a good match will depend a lot on the content of hops. If the ale has more hops, it will be stronger, and will pair best with more flavourful food. And if the beer is filled with fruity flavours, you’ll want to go for something that can match those big flavours.
Generally speaking, pale ales are hoppy but not overpowering, with strong aromas and moderate intensity. If you’re looking for some alternative pairing options for your Chase My Tail Pale Ale, try:
- BBQ steak
- Cheese and meat board
- Fish and chips
