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 Ďhop sackí aromas, fruity citrus flavours and a bitter finish that makes pale ale drinking a truly rewarding experience.

DrGD (103) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Golden colour with white foam. Aroma has flowers, hops and malty notes, not very strong. Taste is fruity and a bit sweet, nicely balanced with medium hoppy bitterness. A bit soapy and thin.

DIBBLE (89) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
Fresh hoppy aroma. Fine off white head over clear reddish golden beer. Citrus hops take the limelight over the light malt base. Full balanced flavour. More understated than some grapefruit in your face ales but faultless in itís presentation of the style. Crisp, zesty with a dry finish.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - APR 21, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Arielís friend! Clear golden. Aroma of skunky hops with a weedy note. Flavor has some sweetish malt, mildly skunky hops, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Drank as a draught. Quite ok. There could be a bit stronger flavours here but otherwise good.

jjsint (1256) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the Blue Glass, Bedford. Consumed at home. Dark gold, cloudy. Floral and spruce hop bouquet, but itís very slight. The taste is more pronounced, a sticky fruity sweetness backed up with some peppery, hoppy bitterness. Not terribly in-your-face feel to this beverage, but a nice easy-drinking drop.

R2k2 (385) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2015
Een ietsjes, "cloudy", doch nog transparant goudgeel - honingkleurig bier met een ietsjes gele kraag. Een typisch, appelzuur aroma met de kleine toets van mango. Een lekkere, volbittere smaak waar het fruitige nog in aanwezig is. De nasmaak is lekker bitter. A somewhat, cloudy, yet still transparant beer with a gold-like of honey-like color. The foam is a little darkish yellow. A typical, apple-sour aroma with a small touch of mango. It taste full-bitter, but the fruit is still quite present. The aftertaste is nice and bitter.

330ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with no head, bland lagery malt, dustings of citrus, floral notes, washing up liquid. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation. Finish is dry and lightly sweet. Not entirely unpleasant.
