imdownthepub (11375) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with whithe head. Odd perfumed aroma leading to the flowery, perfumed vaguely cold tea like flavour that puts me on edge a little, some citrus though and a little fruitiness to rescue it, but just not to my taste.

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.

Chopper925 (292) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy, yellow color, small but nice lacing head. Aromas are some citrus and floral notes. Taste is decent sweet with a nice bitterness. Aftertaste has some nice malty notes, but lacks a bit in the citrusness. The palate is very refreshing, medium texture and a fresh carbonation. Good drinkable, nicely hopped with a good malty taste.

I had 2 pints of this beer at Fox on the Hill, Denmark Hill last night. A decent pint, but the ale in the Fox is not always conditioned correctly.
