Cardinal Pale Ale is the brew of champs. While stealing the show as the 2014 U.S. Beer Tasting Champion was impressive, the number of adoring fans that it has brought to the Nebraska Brewing Company is even more noteworthy. Pop the bottle open, inhaling the fresh aroma of citrus with floral undertones. Savor the layers of white froth as you pour, or lift the bottle right to your lips for that slightly-bitter taste of Cascade hops.

You’ll notice the enticing blend of nuts and chocolate right away, but savor a few more sips to pick up on the brown sugar. It’s just the right sweetness to lighten up a rich, dark brew.
