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).

HammerTroll (582) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2014
Hazy golden/amber color, small off-white head. Slightly hoppy and bitter. Taste is mild, fruity and caramel. Watery, thin body, average carbonation. OK, I guess, but expected more.

DSG (6326) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy deep golden-copper. Stale aroma of cardboard with malt and a bit of honey. Sweetish flavor with cardboard, malt, a bit of fruitiness and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Seems old.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 21, 2014

Bosskie (455) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Beautiful red colour, weak head, light carbonation. Smell is caramel and when pears. Toffee pear. Like pear juice. Nicely fizzy, dry with a good bitter wstery balance. Typical British ale. Taste gets better as it gets warmer.

mydogjet (39) - - AUG 8, 2014
From the "past best before bin" at grain and grape. Best before 3 months ago. Deep amber colour. Hints of biscuit and floral on the nose. Good body with mild spiciness. An ok beer. Probably better if it was drunk 6 months ago.

Rob_D_UK (869) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Moderate head. Toffee, caramel and hop aromas that develop in the mouth with a slight saltiness before becoming hoppier in the dry bitter finish.
