Bottle - pours pale yellow with a dense white head. Aroma is quite earthy with some cardboard and nuts. Taste is slightly nutty with only the very very faintest of hints of hops. Palate is a bit thin.

BeardedAvenger (256) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Initially decided to only include ratings of new beers. But now adding in some older beers, but without details comments. Bog standard, if inoffensive.

kwik-lime (1715) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle at the Big Easy in London. Some zest and piney hops, nicely balanced, very drinkable - enjoyable beer.

tombutlin (236) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2016
This is not a Pale Ale, but is I guess pale and an ale. I discovered to my dismay that I’d arranged my birthday in a Monteiths bar. This was among the worst on tap as I struggled for anything memorable.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - MAR 4, 2016
A clear orange body with a moderate white head. Nose has sweet citrus notes laced with caramel and bread dough. Dry taste with a mildly bitter finish and some caramelly sweetness. Low carbonation and medium sticky palate. A bit heavy and dull for an IPA.

whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2016
Pale gold with a medium crisp white head. Wheat and very slight citrus hop aroma, smells more like a lager than a pale. Tastes reasonably sweet and a little bit salty(?). Very, very slight grassy hop flavour. Very light body, extremely thin and over carbonated. Pale Ale is a stretch.

Peter_L (1244) - SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2015
Dynga från från Nya Zeeland, importerat av Spendrups. Men det är så klart ofarligt att ta hit den då jag inte kan komma på någon öl som kan vara hotad av denna.

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Deep spicy hop aroma. Very pale yellow beer with small lasting head, tiny bubbles. Light body, watery feel. A bit spritzy. Tiny hop finish. Disappointing.

Feral_Hop_Hog (26) - - DEC 30, 2014
Tastes nothing like a pale ale should. Very disappointing. Thin and lager like. Flat, no mouthfeel. Definitely no hops showing. Very bleh, like most of Monteiths other offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
