chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Cask (handpump) at the Junction, Clapham Junction on 28 August 2015 as Sambrooks Pumphouse Pale Ale. Thought I’d rated this before but I guess it’s buried in the backlog somewhere. Pale gold appearance. Thin white head. Clean and juicy. Some citrus. Bittersweet feel. Refreshing if undemanding. I would have had this down as a Golden ale rather than a Bitter, even if it’s not particularly aromatic.

Maker: Sambrook’s Brewery, SW11 3QG London Beer: Pumphouse Pale Ale (bottle-conditioned, 500ml) Style: English Pale Ale (EPA), ALC.VOL.: 4.2% "Our Pale Ale is brewed with Maris Otter pale malt and contains a mixture of Admiral, First Gold, Celeia and New Zealand Hallertau whole leaf hop. This gives our pale ale a light, dry and zesty tate with a citrus aroma." [brewery notes] Colour: Light orange, hazy. Minimal white head. Nose: Dominant floral notes, some citrus, faint herbs. Texture: Medium-bodied, not too fizzy. Rather firm. Low carbonation. Taste: Dry floral notes are very strong at first. Some biscuity malts, very moderate citrus. The floral notes persist until the finish, hoppy bitterness nore pronounced, and increasing in the finish. Faint citrus note remains. Finish also includes pinewood (but not resin). Medium long, hoppy aftertaste, muted bitterness. Impressions: A straightfaced, no-nonsense, dry and medium bodied English pale ale. Predictably, not as aggressively hoppy as the American variety. Very refreshing, sessionable.
