No-Li Brewhouse is releasing its Expo Series summer seasonal, Noble Hop Extra Pale Ale, available from June through August. Brewmaster Mark Irvin designed the beer to be reminiscent of a lager – light and crisp, with traditional Noble hops, Saaz and Hallertau – while featuring the brewery’s American-Irish yeast blend, and fermenting the beer at ale temperatures, giving the beer a slight fruity flavor.
The Noble Hops used are sourced from the United States, grown in the Yakima Valley in Washington.
“Old world meets new in this internationally inspired beer with a local twist. We used Noble Hops, Saaz and Hallertau, grown right here in our backyard, the Yakima Valley. The beer has four kettle hop additions, and is finished with dry-hopping. This golden-hued beer reveals a classic Noble-hop aroma with a crisp finish,” the brewery explained in a press release.
