100% Made In China, the Pale Ale #6 is a malty pale ale balanced with a nice hoppy dryness. Brewed with Chinese roasted malts and hopped with locally grown Qingdao Flower, this is our signature session pale ale.

Not intense enough unfortunately, hoppy like with traditional Czech and German hops, not fruity, a bit malty. Almost clear amber color, tiny head, nice lacing. In taste itís similar to aroma. It reminds me rather about German pils than pale ale, but in the same time itís not very clear in taste, like an English ale. Itís ok, not that bad, but I was expecting bit more.

On draft at the original brewery in the back alleys of a Beijing shopping district. This one had some local flavor going on, but it was mild and not a ton of character. I think they aim for this to be the gateway beer to better and more flavorful craft beer.

Growler 1 ltr at wpbf. Amber color, small off-white head. A bit cardboardish, marmalade and citrus. Medium-bodied. Flowery, citrus and fruits. A bit minerally finish. Simple but good in China scale.

1L growler @ wPBF Ⅲ. Thanks omhper!
Aroma is sweetish with fruit candy. Flavour has strawberries, peachy tones and minerals. Not as hoppy as Iíd expect APA to be, but nice still.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 Draught at the Roundhouse in Central. Deep copper. Off white head. Malty and bready aroma. Malty toffee bready flavor. Traditional pale ale. Good for the style. On draught at brewhouse #12 in capital city its a bit stinky but still tastes as good.

Growler from great leap brewpub
herbal, leafy hops on this malt led mid amber brown beer. Fairly sweet with just enough hops to balance. a little too strong to be sessionable and perhaps needing some more late editions to make it really sing, nonetheless an enjoyable APA.
