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.

Bottle from Gardiner Haskings, Bristol. Appearance: medium white head which disappears quickly, gold colour, clear, fair lacing. Aroma: mostly grain, a bit of burnt plastic. Taste: lightly bitter. Palate: light body, medium finish, soft carbonation. Overall: dislike its aroma, otherwise I would say above the average.

Jonb5 (481) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
Pint at the Market Porter. A: Bronze, clear, lively looking, medium well retained head, clear. S: Noble hop, Hallertau? More Pilsner than Pale Ale. T: Sour dough, lots of rye bread gave way to fruity bitterness. M: Lots of carbonation, had a real snap to it. O: Seemed stronger than it was, would drink again. More of a European than American take on a pale ale.

BeerNinjaUK (134) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle from Ocado. Pours mid amber, clear with lots of tiny bubbles and a thin watery head. Aroma weak but with interesting American style hops - some mild citrus and piney flavour. Good taste but rather too well carbonated and without the depth of strength of some similar pale ales.
