COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
Formerly known as Withens IPA. Rebranded in 2011 to avoid confusion with the more recently introduced Python IPA.
Light and bright, Withens Pale Ale uses refreshing floral Cascade hops with hints of spice, orange and citrus, giving a delicious dry bitter finish.

One of my favourites just has to be from my local brewery, dun’t it. Citrussy with a Germanic kind of flavour (here I say Germanic in the sense languages are Germanic so I can conveniently include the Dutch brewer, van der Spek, in this description), and so very quaffable. Ah, home!

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 (11050) - 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.

Aika tavanomainen kalja. Jaakon makuun liian humalainen loppu, liian mitäänsanomaton alku.

Shared by ma Dad. Pour hazy pale yellow, with a small white head. Aroma of hay, sligh skunk, light citrus. Taste has very faint sweetness up front, but is dominantly bitter. Watery bodied, with a fizzy carbonation.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden looking one with lots and lots of small unfiltered particles floating around and a small kinda bubbly white little top. It has a super citrus infused almost lemony nose. Fresh and almost grassy with a really high amount of citrus. Can’t remember the last ’light’ beer I’ve had that has this amount of citrus on the nose. Like it! It has a really nice taste as well. In the mouth it’s kinda light as expected but not directly watery or thin. The bubbles are about where they should be. Zesty hops, some grassy sharpness and a gentle malty sweetness in the back. A light lemon hint in the soft and bitter aftertaste. This is quite good, sessional and definitely moreish. 26.12.2013

KoNrRiI (679) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 3, 2014
0.5 bottle. A little hazy, gold color and a medium, white head leaving decent lacing. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of pale malts - barnyard, some cheese, and grain but also floral and citric additions. Taste is medium sweet with sour notes but other than that hard to describe apart from an overarching, spicy character. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much sourer than the rest, needs a proper hoppy, bitter offset in my opinion. Overall the beer is alright but seems watery and unbalanced.

Easy drinking pale ale, refreshing dry finish, light carbonation. Good summer drinking .
