Inspired by Irish Red Ales, American Amber Ales
have become an American craft beer movement.
American Amber Ale is noteworthy for its relatively
even balance between malt and hop expression. Our
coppery-brown hued Amber Ale emphasizes the rich,
malty character of the dark-roasted, crystal malt imported
from England. The ale is moderately hopped with
hops from the Yakima Valley in Washington state, using
a top-fermenting ale yeast.

Malted Wheat, Pale Malted Barten, Munich Malts and Oats
Hallertau Aroma Hops from Bavaria
indiA PALE ALE
This style of beer, also called IPA, features a wide variety of domestic and imported aromatic and bitter hops. Some of these hops
are added “dry” during the aging of the beer to produce a bouquet of citrus and grapefruit aromas. The malty flavor is created from
both the dark malt and crystallized caramel malt. American Craft Brewers have created an IPA that’s a highly hopped and very malty
rendition of its British predecessor. This Kirkland Signature India Pale Ale is a “big beer” with an alcohol content of 6.5% and 67 IBU.

Cascade, Columbus, German Perle, Amarillo and Centennial
Pale Ale stems from the brewing tradition of Burton-on-Trent, England, circa 1100. The high hop profile came from the classic hop
varieties of Kent Goldings and Fuggles, which extended from the aroma right through to the finish. This pronounced bitterness was
accentuated by the hard water of the region. Ours is an example of a classic American-style Pale Ale, illustrating the complex bitterness
and aroma of Cascade hops from the Yakima Valley in Washington state. The top-fermenting ale yeast strain contributes to the floral
and herbal flavor with a hint of fruit. The clean, malty body comes from the pale, light-roasted caramel malt, adding sweetness to
complement the hop-forward bitterness.
