Paul Revere, Liberty Ale and the rise of American pale ale

excerpt:

The classic English-style pale ale has some malt aromas but mild or even strong, fruity esters with herbal or earthy types of hops showing through. They're hoppier beers, but not aggressively so. American pale ales, on the other hand, wear their hops on their sleeves, with more fruity, floral and citrusy American-variety hop aromas and flavors. They can be piney or resinous. Butterscotch at low levels is a plus in English beers, but not in American ones, which should be well-balanced and aggressively hopped with more local hop varieties.
