Belgian pale ales are a bit elusive as they are brewed throughout several provinces of Belgium and defy categorization. They span a broad spectrum of characteristics, but generally they share the same attributes as the English pale ales. Still the Belgian version is spicier and more aromatic and more of an amber to copper color than the English or American versions. It has a light to medium body with a well rounded balance, and begins at about 5 percent alcohol by volume. It is well suited for everyday drinking. De Konnick and Speciale Palm are two to look for when traveling outside of the United States.
