Somewhere stylistically and geographically between English pale ale and German Altbier you will find a russet-colored, standard gravity, top-fermented beer: Belgian pale ale, the standard lunchtime tipple in the cafes and pubs of Antwerp.
The King's Reserve is copper colored with a rocky white stand of froth and, at 5% abv, it's engagingly drinkable. Lucid levels of bright malt supported by kettle additions of nothing but Saaz hops and overlaid with yeast-derived complexity. Fruity with spicy overtones, hopped to balance, finishing malty but dry with a hint of toast and hop bitterness, entirely accessible but packed with intriguing layers of flavor. This everyday ale is just enough like other styles you've had to make it seem a little familiar, but at the same time it's like nothing else, either. This is a beer you could get lost in.
Serve at cellar temp in a stemmed goblet and pair with freshwater fish, shellfish, or sausages.
