MN Nice Cascade SMaSH

Pale Ale

This is a very special SMaSH (single malt, single hop) version of Fitger's MN Nice featuring locally grown hops from Mighty Axe Hops in Foley and pale ale malt from a new local maltster, Maltwerks in Detroit Lakes. A ‘friendly’ amount of bitterness carries you into a flavor much the same - juicy grapefruit, pine, citrus rind, and the slightest hint of stone fruit sit upon a light, bready malt profile. The beer’s medium-light body finishes dry and clean, making this exploration into local terroir (and the future of MN craft beer!) highly sessionable.
