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.

tmrmwel (1003) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
On tap @ Royal Burger & Gin, Bergen. Pours golden with a creamy head. Aroma is hoppy apricots and orange peel, as well as roasted malts with grain. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, and some hoppy notes with lingering orange peel in the finish.

RichardGretton (4263) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
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.

BLADT (633) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2014
From tap. Pours a hazy orange. Good session beer. Calm aroma of citrus and floral hops. Flavors is equally mellow. Hops, but not too bitter. Good for when you want a few.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - 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.

On tap @ Kick Malt & Mat. Slightly hazy orange body with an OK off-white head. Quite light, but nice aroma dominated by citric fruit and a hint of pale malt. Flavor is light and refreshing pale malt, fruity, peaches and decent bitterness. Medium body with a decent aftertaste. Quaffable, smooth and well balanced session ale. Nice.

Niksko (360) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2013
On tap in a pint glass. Clear golden pour with a bit of frothy white head. Aroma is OK. Floral and orange hop nose. Taste is kind of bland. Bitter with a bit of orange hop flavor. Crisp and light body. Carbonation was a bit over. Pretty boring and unimpressive.
