Our Pale Ale was named and first brewed to celebrate Crail Food Festival 2012. A bright golden ale with long lasting citrus and floral flavours especially good when relaxing on a nice day with mates and sampling some wonderful fresh fish and I can testify to that!

Bottle from Luvians. A golden ale with enough English hop flavor to give it the aroma of some of the best cask Bitters. Light body showcases the hops, which are mostly floral but a little bit of citrus aroma is there too. Good -- I took a bottle home!

On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy gold with some creamy white head. Nose is OK, there’s an attempt at some late boil hopping with lemon and light pine, but mostly the golden ale shines through, yeast and flowers. Flavor has honey, mild biscuit, lemon, light straw, light grass. Finishes dry. Not aggressive enough to be a pale ale.

Graham77 (443) - SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2016
500ml bottle conditioned, from Sainsburys. Golden ale with poor white head. Minimal carbonation, not well conditioned. Needed a bit more fizz. Tastes pretty bland also. It’s all very well saying bottle conditioned, not pasteurised, not filtered but it has to be done right. Increasingly I avoid supermarket bottle conditioned beers as they are often a let down.

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Draft at Craft 100 Spring 2016 - Craft Beer Co. Clapham, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a light, white foam head. The nose holds grainy pale malts and a little hay. Light sweet flavour with touches of lemon, rind, more pale grains. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish, with notes of biscuits and lemon peel. Pretty alright stuff.

Craft 100 at Craft Clapham. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, no head. Light dry palate. Grainy sweet pale malts with just a touch of citrus to provide some contrast. Mildly bitter finish. Pretty poor.
