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.

On Tap at Meantime Brewery in Greenwich England

A -Tiny head. Fades quickly to a small ring of bubbles SRM of 5. Light gold

S - Chinook hops. Light bit of aromatics. Hops really dominate the smell but it’s very weak

T - Sort of hoppy taste. Weak and maybe a bit faded. Roses and Monterey cheese. Lager with hops?

M - 50% carbonation. Medium body. Very weak finish

O – 3.5/100. An okay over lunch beer.

jackl (5806) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle. The ale’s a light. slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The nose is slightly sweet, there’s a funky pea-like smell to this beer. Some grass, light malts. The taste is pretty easy, moderately sweet with a simple moderately bitter finish. The body is light/medium. The carbonation is medium. Overall, an OK pale, don’t cry if you miss out on a bottle.

Kristall-König (2475) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Geruch hopfig - leicht süßlich zitronig mit Noten von Getreide und gemähtem Heu. Antrunk zunächst süßlich-hopfig. Mittelteil würziger, bittere Züge. Im Abgang trockenbitter, süßlich, mehlig was hier die Süffigkeit ein wenig schmälert. Solide. Die Bitternote ist dagegen recht gut präsent.Test vom 24.3.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche

TATE (370) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Draft at the Nocturnem Draft Haus. This is a bright yellow color and a bit cloudy with little head. Aroma is great with citrus from the hops. This is a pretty light beer but has character and the right level of hops. Overall a good pale ale.
