orange, sparkling, frothy, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent, Sine the 2011 tax changes made 2.8% beer cheaper there’ve been quite a few entrants into this new beer category. Of all them the one that stands out is Cains Calcutta Pale Ale. It is a refreshing enjoyable drink that is great value.

Can from Craig. Pours an amber brown colour with a yellowish - beige head that dies away early. Aroma is quite yeasty with pine and pineapple hop notes. Treacle and alcohol are also fairly present. Similar flavours with treacle upfront, caramel and a nice bitter finish. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel. This is surprisingly full bodied given the 2.8% abv. Not bad.

Can at home. Thanks cgarvieuk! Pale orange amber pour, thin white head fades to very little. Nose is light bready caramel malt, hint of metallic grassy hop. Palate is pretty thin and bland to start with, followed by hints of caramel and a grassy hop finish. Very very thin, but the flavours aren’t horrible considering the ABV.

Tinny. Ketchupy nose which is far from unpleasant. Tastes somewhat undisastrous, but still on the bland side. Still, not bad at all for 2.8%.

Not really a pale ale as its more like a low alcohol bitter, taste is malty and biscuity

2.8% amber colour with a thin head, flowery hop aroma, malt and hop taste and bitter, not too bad.

zacgillbanks (2463) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Can from Tesco, Hexham. Unusually copper coloured (for a pale ale) with creamy red fruity and burnt toffee flavours and a slight roasted finish. Very good considering its low ABV.

440ml can from Tesco. Attractive design on the can with an image of an Indian elephant carrying hops in his trunk. Thin toffee taste, slightly metallic, with a slight dusting of hops in the finish. This is a drinkable beer. Cheap as chips, and low abv. Knock ’em back.
