A truly tranquil beer, the Glass Lake Pale Ale is our take on the Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale. We kept the malts simple, using maltodextrin and Crystal 10L, the lightest crystal malt we offer, to add a little body and color to the smooth malt backbone that our ultralight malt extract provides. Cascade is the only hop varietal in this recipe, being used from bittering all the way to the dry hop addition!
The result is a very smooth and balanced beer, complete with the classic floral, citrus & grapefruit aromas and flavors that Cascade hops are so well known for.
