Bottled; Regular. ABV varies.
NOTE: As explained by the brewery in the commercial description, this beer is often made to varying recipes with different hops. Please make sure you put your review under the correct entry. The hops used are clearly identified on the label so there’s no excuse!

Everyone likes a pale ale and we’re no different. We like to mix up the aroma hops a bit and you will find that Pale Fire comes in different versions sometimes. We have hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo, Amarillo and Citra, Nelson Sauvin and others including the legendary Hop X, an English trial-hop being developed by Dr Peter Darby at Wye Hops.

olio (6232) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours not that pale orange color with a large head. There’s mandarin all over the place, floral hops, some resin notes and grass. Juicy mandarin on the flavor also, gooseberries, faint grapefruits and maybe a tad of pineapple on the aftertaste. Bitter and fruity, crisp and tasty.

mt_hall (119) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Bottled. Amber colour with a slight haze and a very small off-white head. A big, hoppy aroma of citrus, honey, tropical fruit, and pine. In the mouth there’s a very dry, bitter hoppiness, with citrus and tropical fruit in the background. A very dry, clean finish. Excellent.

Bottle from Ales By Mail [120814]
Pale amber, hazy, bubbly white head
Aroma of tropical fruits, sweet citrus fruits, piney hops, sticky resinous hops, smorgasbord of hop aromas, loads of fruits. Even sniffing the residue at the end of the bottle - loads of sweet fruits. Great emulation of fruits here
Taste as aroma, complex fruity hops, tropical fruits, orange, pine, grapefruit, mango, mainly tropical fruits, big big fruits, nice zesty hops, great flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium body, good bitter sweet balance. Finish with lots of fruits
Overall - Best one so far from this brewery. Fantastic.

Bottled, 330ml from Oeno, Cirencester, Gloucs. Gold with white head. This definitely didn’t have any alternative hops highlighted on the bottle, so in here. Good, dry hop impact, citric, gooseberry, grapefruit notes, lightly malted body, dry and bitter. Pretty decent.
