Light and bright, Withens Pale Ale uses refreshing floral Cascade hops with hints of spice, orange and citrus, giving a delicious dry bitter finish.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from Old Shambles Tavern in York. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon followed in by cardboard and a musty malt thing. Taste - more lemon and malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - a bit like drinking a liquid version of a malt bag. A bit bland.

500ml bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy pale gold with a thin bubbly white head. Aromas of musty malt, stale lemonade. Taste is lemon and cardboard. Not great.

Pours slightly hazy with small lasting head tastes orange and pine with a pithy hoppy drying finish one of this brewery’s better beers.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Watery and weird pale ale, but not a total disaster.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2015
Flaske 500ml fra Kjeller 5. Veldig lys gyldengulbrun. Svakt uklar. OK skum som flater fort ut. Svak sitrusaroma. Smaken litt tynn. Mest sitrus. Holder seg syrlig. Tørr avslutning. Veldig uklar siste kvelling. KI=1.

Bottles from Fabeers, York; Off Licence, Howarth; Booths, Keswick. Very pale golden in colour with malty, citrus and lemon flavours with toffee notes followed by a floral bitter hop finish. Very nice considering it’s low ABV. Bottle Conditioned

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
bottle from kihoskh, clear yellow, small white head. mild aroma of brewmash and malts. reminds me of a nonalc aroma. A little bit sweeter malty than a nonalc though. Not much flavor, but it tastes very good, the flavor there is, is a mild malty flavor with a high bitterness, almost as high as an english bitter, but slightly more hoppy and herbal bitter than your usual bitter. the beer is also slightly sweeter than usual, but it all works out without getting cloying.

A very full taste, with a bitter finish. Not entirely my favourite, but still leaves you with a very rich taste over your tongue, with a hint of fruit. Would not mind drinking this again.
