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.

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 (4312) - 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.

Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Completely clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Stays as a thin white film. Sweet, resiny hops aroma, crisp malts, light lemon and grapefruit. Highish carbonation, fine light and mildly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is balanced, a hint of vegetable, grapefruit, piney, dryish end. Long, lingering bitter finish. Fresh and very drinkable.

AndreaDel (56) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Clear golden, white persistent head. This bottle is probably a bit old, infact the hop aroma is not so evident. Nose is hoppy still, body is light, light carbonation. Clean taste, dry and light bitter end.
