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.

Disappointing I’m afraid. Certainly a pale ale of the English traditional variery rather than one that proxies APAs. Bready, biscuity in the malt with a little floral bitterness in the hops. But really quite plain in taste.

Biscuity malt and lager-like aromas. Taste is stale hops, medium bitter and not a lot else. Average beer.

jamaty (1429) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Ambar, un par de dedos de espuma que no agunta demasiado. Aroma de base malteada, acaramelada, con cierto amargor que recuerda a almendra. Nada de fruta. En boca lIgera y bebible. Y bien equilibrada con una base malteada potente y rica, acaramelada, junto con la potencia de sabores y amargor controlado que le dan los lupulos americanos, que marcan cierto predominio no exagerado. Rica. Sin duda.

Pinball (11584) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
Clear dark orange small light brown head. Heavily hopped English bitter hops with a more caramelly note. Strong aroma reminds me of St. Peters. Flavor is caramelly old euro hops , malts. Flat bitter British brew.
