COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our signature pale ale we use only our pale malted barley, with a small amount of malted wheat. A few degrees hoppier than the ESB, again using North American and English varieties, with emphasis on English Goldings in the finish. Hard water to emulate the great brewing centre of Burton on Trent, the birthplace of pale ale. A truly classic, English Style Pale Ale, crisp, hoppy, and thirst-quenching.

Occasionally known as Turbo.

johnnnniee (2410) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from the source. Pours a deep golden color with a smallish off white head that shows marginal retention. Aromas of toffee and caramel with hints of earthy citrus. The flavor follows the aroma and adds a bit more of that butterscotch that beer geeks up here seem to like. Medium body and level of carbonation. English inspired, okay brew.

A nice little pale ale, with good balance of hops and maltiness. My only complaint is consistency. Not sure why, but sometime I get one that is a bit too sweet and worty. Still a good beer.

BrewGoblin (446) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
A very nice example of an English style here and happy that it is from a brewery close to home but sadly locally unavailable as of now. The golden pour smells of some grains, toast, clover honey and a tad of grapefruit. Taste is the same, nice malt HQ with a dry, bitter finish to take home. Quite.

Bottle (341 ml). From czar, thanks! Clear golden with a medium quickly fainting white head, but with intense and beautiful lacing. Aroma is floral with caramel, earthy notes, malt and light sweetness. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with with floral notes, honeyed malt, earthy/mineral notes, caramel and a light to moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. I don’t know how fresh is this bottle, but I love the fact that Golding hops aren’t through the roof. Tasty for the style. Moderately quenching, but still quite enjoyable.

Reimer96 (1310) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a hazy dark copper with a small frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, pale malts, grassy hops and slight woodiness. Taste is grassy hops, caramel sweetness, medium high bitterness slightly on the high side though. Finishes very dry and could be a bit less dry for a better overall beer and flavor. Overall this beer is sessionable and nice to drink.
