COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg - force carbonated. Is available cask conditioned. Cold fermented and lagered.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, pale crystal malt, and Munich malt: Cascade, Cluster, and Goldings hops.

One hundred and fifty years ago the new bitter beer style, Pale Ale, was so popular that brewers had to import Californian hops to meet demand. Meantime London Pale Ale continues that tradition by combining lots of American Cascade and Centennial hops to give it a complex citrus aroma and buckets full of local Kentish Goldings to provide the bitterness that makes the style so refreshing. Together they conspire to assail the nose with a complex, heady mix of spearmint, grass and ‘hop sack’ aromas, fruity citrus flavours and a bitter finish that makes pale ale drinking a truly rewarding experience.

In bottle. Golden amber. White rocky head. A bit cloudy. Not very persistent and intense, at nose and in the mouth. Honey, biscuit, lemon, orange peel, grassy. Good carbonation. Sweet in the entry and the bitter is not persistent and intense.

Iznogud (836) - CROATIA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml at Pivkan, Zagreb. Pours orange with white head. Fruity, malty, citrus. Light to medium body and hoppiness. OK, but nothing special.

Drank bottled in LA Salle Bar in Heathrow Terminal 2. More lager taste than Pale Ale but nice and refreshing all the same! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gregmcfish (8) - SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2014 does not count
330ml bottle. Pours clear. Amber colour. Virtually no carbonation. Tinny aroma and minimal white foam head. Flat metallic taste that lingers. Not awesome.

Kauge (341) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, mingi väikepood Redchurch Streetil Londonis (£ 1,99), 33 cl. Värvilt heledapoolne merevaik, vaht kreemika varjundiga valge, püsib täitsa kenasti ja kleepub seintelegi. Lõhn on sügiseselt täidlane, tähendab, niiske ja värske, kuid juba kergelt roiskunud hõnguga. Tunda on sidrunit ja mingit ebameeldivat (hapukat) nüanssi, millele ei oska küünt taha panna. Juues vähene magusus, rohkem kibedat humalat, mis jätab kurku päris mõnusa tunde. Kehalt kerge (peaaegu vesine), kuid jätab suulakke mõnusalt kleepja tunde; mullisust üpris vähe (või juba ära kadunud). Seistes lisandub nii lõhna kui maitsesse (lillelist-mesist-karamellist) magusust. Seltskondliku joogina oleks täiesti okei.

Very middle of the road american pale ale, fresh tasting and pleasant enough but not the most complex or interesting beer. Perfect for a hot summer’s day.
