While it might not be trademarked, this Ale is everything you could want from a balanced yet well-hopped British Pale. Beginning with a rich Pale malt base we blended 2 different crystal malts and 4 British hop varieties to give an intense earthy tangerine quality. We then fermented this with yeast from our favorite London brewery. Rich, fruity, balanced, quaffable. Enjoy!

Tap @ La Cumbre. Pours a dark leave appearance with an off white head. A bit spicy chewy aspirin, caramel, biscuity nose. Caramel, light fruity, bready/biscuity flavor. Ok.

Draft at the source courtesy of erway, thank you very much! Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of fruit and rising white bread dough. Taste is fruity biscuits. Tasty.

10oz draft from La Cumbre; November 2012
The beer arrives with a -finger thick, pale, off-white head that sits on top of a red with gold edges beer. Aromas of English biscuit maltiness, berry laden hops, citrus and a light herbal greet my nose up front.

This has a nice hop biting bitterness to it up front, then lots of biscuit maltiness kicks in, touches of sweet tea like crystal malt as well as a lingering toasted malt character and whole grain cracker character are noticeable in the finish. Herbal hop notes up front combine with a soft berry / citrus character in the middle of each sip. As the beer warms up it picks up a marmalade like flavor to it, with the citrus and berry hop character become a bit more prominent. The body is light and quaffable with just a touch of malt viscosity to it.

This is a nice, English leaning Pale Ale; it really opens up as it warms up. This has a good balance between malt and hop; quite enjoyable, though it was initially served way too cold for my particular palate.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a coppery color with thin white head. Aroma is citrusy. Light bodied with a smooth finish. Flavor is tangerine with some slight bitterness in the finish, pretty unique. Very easy to drink. I enjoyed this.
