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.

ClubGonzo (3520) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
On tap @ The Flying Dutchman, Bergen. Pours a clear bright orange body with a medium white head. Nose is mild citric tones, peaches, grass and hints of pale malts, rose water and herbs. Taste is pale malts, flowers, red berries, citric tones and hints of honey and peaches. Light body, medium carbonation. Quite a tasty and refreshing EPA, perfect for a sunny day in Bergen like this.

Clear pale body with low white head. Aroma is mostly malty with light floral on the nose, very light, otherwise clean. Taste is malty bready sweetness, little bit under attenuated, with low to medium bitterness. Nothing special really. Body is full with medium carbonation.

Kita (864) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy deep golden color with small frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, grains and mild caramel. Taste starts with light sweet malt, follows by fruity acidity and heavy bitter finish. Medium body, dry texture a.nd lively carbonation in palate. It’s typically fresh and hoppy, but a bit too bland...

Drinkable but bland. Missing the strong flavours, fine but nothing worth having twice....

Bottled from Sainsburys. The head is a little thin but the beer is nice and golden. Not as thick as some Pale Ales but has a satisfying hoppiness. A powerful citrus kick after doesnt disappoint either. If you’re a fan of other Meantime beers you’ll enjoy this.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pale amber. Off white, thin, lasting head. Grassy. Light toffee. Bit of fust. Taste is dry. Light bitter. Watery palate. Metallic, bitter finish. Cheap, though!
