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.

Hazy golden copper pouring with a thin white head. Golding hops aroma with a little spiciness. Flavor is fruity with a malty backbone. The palate is a little rough. A complex and decent beer. I think the centennial pulls it out of the weeds.

JonnyConga (77) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Pours clear deep golden with a short lived head. Not much aroma apart from malt. Tastes malty with slight bitterness. Not nearly as hoppy as I expected. Alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Bella testa di schiuma bianca, cremosa, abbastanza fine, di media persistenza e aderente, colore giallo ambrato velato, aroma maltato e leggermente floreale, al palato corpo medio- leggero e media carbonazione, si percepisce subito la dolcezza dei malti in un buon equilibrio con gli amari dei luppoli, e’ la birra che ci si aspetta in una Pale Ale inglese, abbastanza beverina.

Aroma citrus etc. Flavor has sweet fruitiness, yeast. Solid maltiness and enough bitter.
