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.

Buena Pale Ale, aunque nada espectacular. Predominio del lúpulo en el primer momento, aunque el final es más plano. Buena carbonatación. Refrescante.

HammerTroll (518) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2014
Hazy-sh golden color, medium white head. Mild and watery. Some hops and malts, but that’s about it. Thin body, watery carbonation. Best thing about this one is front label design.

Surprisingly good pale ale. Distinguishe sweet fruity hops aroma. Tender malty taste and bittersweet aftertaste
