TALEA Beer Co. Releases Lunch Date Pale Ale

NEW YORK — Lunch Date Pale Ale (5.5% ABV) is a hazy, low-bitterness, New England-style Pale Ale. Layered flavors of overripe lemon and grapefruit zest, this hazy Pale Ale is refreshing and bright. Lunch Date is your perfect escape from the grind. Inspired by LeAnn and Tara’s lunch hour brainstorming sessions, this beer is brewed to be crisp, effervescent, and palate pleasing. Pair your daily recess with this refreshing pale ale, brimming with citrus flavors.


Citra, El Dorado, Amarillo, Simcoe, Eukanot


Lunch Date is brewed using a base malt and a touch of flaked oats. Minimal hops are added during the brew followed by a massive double dry hop during fermentation to enhance the citrus aromas. The addition of oats builds a smooth, medium body that adds mouthfeel and texture. Lunch Date has a hazy, nearly opaque, pale gold appearance and fragrant aroma that leaps from the glass.
