Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Beyond the Pale is a pale golden bitter brewed with a touch of Amber Malt. Pronounced floral hop aroma from the inclusion of North American Cascade hops and a long, dry hoppy finish.

Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival. Orange Gold colour with thick white head. Very strong dry bitter flavour emanate from this delicious brew. Uncomprimsingly bitter and hoppy, a fine light bitter.

500ml, bottle conditioned. A little overconditioned if anything as it was so lively when opened that dispersing the sediment around the bottle contents was unavoidable. Consequently the colour was a hazy orange/gold. Very intense lemon and flowery Cascade aroma. On the palate, it's bitter lemon all the way with any other nuances of flavour completely overwhelmed. And that finish - dan is quite right to call it blisteringly dry. I would add a few other adjectives - mouth-puckering, uncompromising, austere, unyielding, searingly harsh. Like biting on a raw lemon. Phew! A real hop monster, with nothing more forgiving to balance it out, but I still quite like this. From beersinabox.com

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2004
UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 Hand pulled at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham (during their week-long real ale promotion). Very yellow, with some scraggy white fizz on top. Crisp, floral with some fruit, leading up to a blisteringly dry crescendo. A big pocket of hop twang. Sunny, pleasant beer, but very dry.
