Name changed from Old Brewery Pale Ale to Organic Pale Ale in 2011.
Ingredients: Water, malted barley, yeast, hops.
Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); best barley malt, yeast and aromatic hops; fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create a full, rounded flavour and after-taste.
Best served at about 51°F (11°C).

Quintasential english pale. Almost amber in colour and character. A bit nutty, nice and sweet, appropriately hopped.

Malty, hoppy aroma, copper colour, a huge toffee head. Malty, nutty flavour, good hop aftertaste. Smooth, balanced, as always well crafted.

Malty sweet nose. Extremely clean beer, and oddly has a nuttier taste than the nut brown. I can’t discern much difference between this and the winter welcome, they’re almost identical. Medium to small body and not very rich. Kind of bland at times. Simple and easy.

Back to an old favorite: amber-tawny color with a nice head dying down to a resilient lace. Nice aroma of malt and spice. Looks appetizing and it is. A nice change from the aggressivley hopped american pale ale’s, this beer is perfectly balanced with pale malts and fruity hop character. Clean as a whistle with balanced flavors all through the finish. It will be gone faster than you want it to be.

Nice to look a with lots of head and aroma. I found this a bit dull, the flavor just did not strike a chord. Wasn’t bad but I would not go out of my way to hunt it down again.

Not as strong as the other pale ales I’ve tried. The color seems a bit off - guess I’d like it a bit darker. The aroma reminded me of a wine. Overall though, very good - great flavor!

500ml bottle in a gift pack (box). First time I could rate it because it was not skunked. Dark gold, slight hoppy nose. Hops do not prevail as in an American pale ale. Smooth taste with a hop finish. I like APA’s better.
