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.

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2011
The beer in the glass is red-orange-yellow with flat, long-lasting head. The smell shows lots of aromahops, with plenty of citrus. Starts very aroma hoppy and herb, with a slight lemon note. The middle part shows a very drinkable and mild hoppy flavor with a slightly herbal note, and and lots of citrus. The finishis a bit more herbal, again with delicious aroma hops.

beardfear (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2011
Medium orange pour from its beautiful bottle. Kiwifruit, grapefruit, butterscotch and malt-heavy bread on the nose. Starts off British with flowery English hops and buttery ESB malt, and finishes American with muscular cascade bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky. Very fine carbonation. Familiar but inviting mid-Atlantic pale ale.

DutchDrebus (4775) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle @ Café Buitenlust, Oirschot. And what a bottle it is. Looks great, classy and delicious. Colour is fine, quite clear. Smell is a bit hoppy, just like the taste. Not too heavy on the alcohol. Easily drinkable, but definitly not boring or dull.
