ZeLUS Beer Company Beer Description (on can)
Race Pace was conceived as a hybrid beer, combining a classic low gravity English Mild recipe with the heavy-handed dry hopping of a New England IPA. An easy drinking beer, it has a base of classic pale malts layered with resinous, citrusy, hoppy goodness from it's use of Mandarina Bavaria and other hops. Big flavor with a low gravity, Race Pace is a beer brewed to compete with the best.

Final thoughts on Race Pace
Decent beer. If we were runners, we could see tossing back a Race Pace or two after an 800 or 2-mile track event. The low abv is the selling point with this ZeLUS brew.
