COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottles and on Keg.
In the days before lager, Pale Ale was the original reassuringly expensive tipple. Drinking it set you apart from the Bitter crowd. Our Pale Ale is more than special. English Goldings, American Cascade & Cluster hops provide the bitterness, whilst our unique dry hopping technique with bucketfuls of Cascade & Willamette hops gives it a tantalising aroma.

Draught@Heathrow Airport. Amber beer with a light white head. The aroma is gently hopped, and the flavour is more deeply hopped with a floral feel and a bitter finish. Overall a nice well hopped and definitely an America style beer.

Theydon_Bois (10363) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Tap at Brew Wharf, 28/12/13. Clear golden with a moderate white covering that retains well. Nose is toasted malts, caramel, orange, bitter fruit notes, light hops. Taste comprises orange, dull pine, faint metallic nip, toasted malt, some hops. Medium bodied, carbonation is a little too prickly and overcooked, grassy bitterness in the cessation. Drinkable and good to see at bars that aside from this only offer macro. However things have moved on and whilst the was something I’d look for 7 or 8 years ago palates change and a whole host of new London brewers can offer much hoppier solutions to my drinkng needs.
