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.

Moravius (1130) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Vom Faß ("handpump") im GLB # 45. - Goldbraun, fast klar; leichte Schaumdecke. - Nase schwach karamellig, zart fruchtig, Anklänge an erdigen Hopfen. - Antrunk mild karamelmalzig mit angenehmer Malzbittere, ganz dezenter Hintergrundsüße und mild erdig-zitronigem Hopfen mit zart floraler Note. Ganz schwach rezent, da ohne Kohlensäure gezapft ("handpump“), dadurch enorm süffig. Mild erdig-hopfenbitterer Nachtrunk. - Als Pale Ale untypisch, da malzbetont und sehr mild (aber aromatisch) gehopft. Sehr rund ohne fade zu sein. Einen Pluspunkt gibt’s für die Verwendung chinesischer Rohstoffe, die geschmacklich durchaus überzeugt (also kein Mitleidsbonus).

Slipstream (2474) - USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft at GL. Easy going APA, on the sweet side for the style, but it works pretty well. Could use more hops. Dang it is fun to have craft beer off a little hutong in Beijing.

adasko (1919) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 25, 2016
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 it’s similar to aroma. It reminds me rather about German pils than pale ale, but in the same time it’s not very clear in taste, like an English ale. It’s ok, not that bad, but I was expecting bit more.

Bacterial (2871) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2015
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.

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2015
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.
