Seattle's Fremont Brewing creates fantastic beers capable of speaking their own language. Their most recent creation, the Field to Ferment Pale Ale, is a great beer to talk about. Late summer hop harvest leads to fresh hopped falls. I love that the NW brews pale ales this time of year. A delicate balance between hop bitterness and soft maltiness calmly displays the traits evenly.
A foamy top crowns the wonderfully transparent and carbonated clarity. This Field to Ferment offering is a great example of crafting a non-IPA with fresh hops. In case I'm not making it clear, the clarity of this pale ale is resounding. Dense aromas transform into a light-bodied mouthfeel, never muting the bouquet in the process. This ale pairs well with pizza, duh. Enjoy responsibly because fresh hop beer matters.
