COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours just slightly hazy but vibrant gold with a rich, lasting white froth head. This smells gorgeous, with loads of fresh citrus fruits, tangerine, juicy orange, some dry grapefruit. The flavor doesn’t quite match the nose in terms of goodness, but it’s decent. Lightly sweet with a mellow citrus character, hints of pine needles, some pale malts. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Fresh and clean to finish with suggestions of white wood, lemon, tangerine, pine needles, pale malts, and grapefruit. This one starts like a rocket but fizzles out a bit as you work through it. Very drinkable, but I’m left feeling this beer could use a jolt.

Fin (7013) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from The Sourced Market, St Pancras International, London, Wednesday 26th March 2014 consumed in hotel Rm, Koln 27th March 2014. Pours a little hazy, murky puddly light brown, hops on nose and a nice bittersweet hoppy flavour. Tastes really, really good. A little bittersweet sting from the hops and the burn just lasts a little bit longer. Super stuff. A7 A3 T9 P4 Ov16 3.9

Bottle. Really inviting citrus and fruit aroma. Flavour doesn’t live up to aroma, pithy fruit with a malt sweetness. A bit yeasty, feels quite kernel-y.
