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).

Clean bright copper pour, fluffy tan head. Nose is Sam Smith yeast and mild hops. Bitter. Middle is soft malt accentuated by the Yorkshire squares and light wood. Finish is restrained but lasting bitterness.

In the glass it has a copper color with a nice head. Aroma has malts up front with some nuts and fruits. Taste has some tropical fruits like mangos and apricots. There is also a nuttiness to it. Good finish.

MrBlueSky93 (401) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from Bier Huis. Pours Chesnut, clear with a singe finger just off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and breadiness. Taste of initial malts, then a bit of carbonation then caramel, toffee, dark fruits, with a lightly hoppy bitter finish. Very nice!

KoNrRiI (694) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2015
0.55 bottle. Clear, light brown color and a small, white head. Delicate aroma of caramel, English malts, and some bread. Taste is sweet, composed of caramel and malts, on top of that some dough and delicate bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is somewhat off balance with astringent tones appearing with time. Overall a standard, English bitter with hundreds like it.

Bottle pour. Pours a copper color with a lasting foam head. Super malty aroma with subtle hops. Overpowering super sweet malt flavor. Not well balanced but not bad either. Fresh tasting beer. Pretty good.

Crockett (1029) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours orange amber with a medium foamy off white lacing head. Slight musty nose of cereal, light sweet apple, mild yeast, and modest hops. Traces of butter tart. Rich and malty for the style. Bready malts, earth. Carbonation is very smooth and attractive Background maple syrup/brown sugar. Hops are quite tame even by British standards. Slight citrus peel in the finish. Nice beer. The label is beautiful.

Great example of classic English beer. All ingredients are in great balance. Perfect malty beer.

550ml bottle into pint glass. Gentle slight hop nose. Magnificent orange red with thin off white head. Big blast of hops, floral bitter finish. A little hint of caramel. It’s good but not great.
