COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well-balanced and slightly fruity, this is our flagship ale. We use authentic two-row English malted barley, including both Pale and Crystal malt. We add three varieties of hops including Kent Goldings, the variety that gives British Isle ales their world-wide following.

While I like Barley’s Pale Ale, it suffers from being compared to the older, more widely available Columbus Pale Ale. It has a good color and taste to it, but the Columbus Pale Ale is still the better of the two.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 11/21/2003 Cask: This version of Barley's Pale is dark copper with a very thin light beige head. Very thin lacing as well. The aroma is heady hops with a faint floral aspect lingering as well. Velvety smooth mouthfeel and seemingly low carbonation with a nice hops flavor throughout, along with a nice malt backbone. The finish is a little slick with a lasting hops bite. I like the regular version of this just a little better. 2/10/2002 - Draught: This Columbus classic is a nice rich copper color with a medium light beige head. Thin and slow lacing. Nice hoppy aroma along with a little malt and caramel. The flavor is rich hops throughout, with a bitter hops and fruit aftertaste. A good match with Barley's food. The only drawback is that I could not recommend this over the Columbus Pale Ale as far as locals go.
