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).

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2016
0.355 l bottle from World Beer Museum, Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo. Dark cloudy amber colour, with a decent head. Taste is malty in a sweetish way with some hops, but not very much, since this is not a bitter. End is still dry.

eljebi (68) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2016
Pale Ale muy británica. De aromas y sabores dulces, a miel, pasas, pan y dátiles, con un toque floral a lúpulo que cierra el trago. Muy bebible pero a la vez compleja en matices. Chula

oliodnb (662) - ITALY - JUN 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours clear orange amber with a minimal off white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel and honey notes, taste is sweet malts, caramel, light final hoppy notes. The finish is slightly bitter with a nice dry touch. Medium body, light carbonation.

cattaneopapa (321) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
550ml bottle from LCBO. 5% Alc./Vol. Pours a clear deep amber colour with one finger of lasting head. Aroma isn’t too impressing. Notes of roasted malts on the nose. Malty taste with notes of bread and hay with a hoppy finish. Moderate carbonation. Nothing special but easy to drink.

fiammanghilla (962) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 3, 2016
Bottiglia 35,5 cl @ jalapeno. Chiara con schiuma persistente. Un po’ pesante e amara. Non il meglio della giornata

kapusil (1204) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 29, 2016
0.55l bottle. Clear amber body with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, reisins, roasted malts and some floral hops. Taste of caramel, biscuit, toast, reisins, roasted malts with a bit of floral hops. As the label says it’s a nice showcase of malts. It’s also balanced between the sweet malts and the roasty, hoppy bitterness. One of the best bitters I’ve ever had.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Dark amber, red colour. Medium head which dissappeared quite quickly. Malts, caramel, honey in the aroma. Caramel at first. Hints of honey and malts in the middle. Sweet, malty finish. Sweetness also in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated beer. Do not have interesting palate. Too sweet for me to be refteshing. Drinkable.

Cristobal37 (816) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2016
Dark bronze, yeasty aroma, dry and bitter with just a dash of fruitiness. Punchy raspberry aftertaste. Really cool pale ale.

thepatrickman (904) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Good bitter with some clean malt taste and English hop aroma. There’s some malt sweetness that mixes with some fruity esters like in all classic English beers. Tasty.
