Belgian Pale Ales are known for their light color, and sweeter, malty flavor profile. The style was created as a direct response to the growing popularity and spread of Pilsners and pale lagers around Europe. Most times, you'll find that they have a restrained hop profile, and instead, will utilize more flavorful yeast strains and a sweeter malt.
