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.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Bottle. Yes, pale with medium sized head. A relatively highly carbonated british bottle conditioned ale!? Hops dominate this beer from the beginning to the very long bitter and dry finale. Medium bodied.

leaparsons (8906) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2005
Cask, Out of the Vaults, Leicester. Golden with a bubbly white foam. Aromas are light malts with lots of sweet, spicy hops. Dry and bitter. Flavours are dry and very bitter, this is well hopped. Has bitter grapefruit and a dry finish. A good one for hop heads.

Ungstrup (30682) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] A hazy dark orange beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flavor is roasted and very nutte, but also with some smoked notes.

imdownthepub (11473) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2004
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.

chriso (7497) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2004
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 (4143) - 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.
