This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at New Belgium's Dig Pale Ale.
Although we have not had much of a spring this year, there is no reason to skip reviewing the beer of the season.
Spring Ales are usually high in their hop content, often with spice or citrus additives. The New Belgium Dig is also strong in its hop flavor, but without any added spice or fruit. Instead, the flavors in the Dig Pale Ale come from an interesting mix of Sorachi Ace, Nelson Sauvin and Cascade hops. The result is a beer with a strong lemon-like aftertaste but a little bit of pepper bite as well.
I would recommend this beer for beer purists who are looking for a Pale Ale with a little extra complexity in the flavor profile. The beer would go well with chinese food or even fish dishes.
New Belgium Dig Pale Ale is under the Kosher Supervision of the Scroll-K of Colorado. Although the beer does not bear the kosher symbol on the label, it can usually be found on the bottom of the six pack holder. Please note that not every brew produced by New Belgium is under kosher supervision.
