What’s Brewing: Elysian Def Leppard Pale

Rock & Brews Restaurants have teamed up with Def Leppard and Seattle-based Elysian Brewing Company to introduce Def Leppard Pale to their customers and are offering fans a chance to win tickets to see Def Leppard on tour this year. Known for handcrafted American food, a mix of more than 100 craft and classic styles of beer on tap and in bottles, and their authentic rock-inspired, family friendly atmosphere, Rock & Brews Restaurants throughout the United States will be the first restaurant brand to offer Def Leppard Pale. In celebration, Rock & Brews Restaurants have a variety of promotions planned, including an opportunity for fans to win tickets to see Def Leppard in Los Angeles, as well as a chance to see the band on tour in many Rock & Brews’ markets. “Rock & Brews celebrates everything that is rock and roll and is the perfect place for fans to indulge themselves with a cold Def Leppard Pale,” said Joe Elliott, lead singer of Def Leppard.

Def Leppard Pale was brewed by Elysian Brewing Company in partnership with Def Leppard to fuse the infamous malt bodies of British ales with the mysteria of Pacific Northwest hops. The launch of the beer was timed to coincide with the Def Leppard 2018 tour.

GSN Thoughts: Slightly hazy. Cream colored head. Patterned lacing. Fruity hop aroma. Balanced flavor with a definite hop burst followed by slight sweet caramel malt, and finished with citrus peel that has a lasting bitterness. Traces of grapefruit and peach and a hint of pine throughout the taste. The beer has a dry quality that pairs nicely with the abundance of flavor. Medium carbonation and body. The malt balances well with the West Coast hop flavor. Not overly strong at 6% ABV, and a good brew to sip on while listening to classic rock.
