COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular house ale for Nicholson’s.
We’re both excited and overjoyed to announce that all Nicholson’s pubs are now proudly serving Nicholson’s Pale Ale, brewed exclusively by St. Austell just for us.
Beautifully crafted by world renowned master brewer Roger Ryman, this is a classic cask conditioned English Pale Ale (4% ABV), and represents both companies’ passion and drive in delivering quality ale which can be enjoyed in the typical British pub atmosphere that Nicholson’s offers.

Cask. Fast klare orange goldene Farbe, mittelgroße weiße schaumkrone. Geruch mild hopfig, zitronig, leicht nussig. Geschmack trocken hopfig, getreidig malzig, helles malz, uninteressant.

Benzai (13942) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2016
Cask shared with rlgk, fonefan and beerhunter111. Clear rusty orange color, average sized creamy beige head that lasts for a long time. Smell and taste malts, lightly bitter. Hardly any flavor to it. Meh.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals meet mineral notes in this slick, drinkable brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cleae golden.
-The mouthfeel is quite suave. One of the beer’s best features.
-Hops are a bit shy to my liking.
-This remains a finely drawn pint that is light years ahead of the macro lager they serve next to it.

On cask at The Pump House, Brighton.

Derbeth (717) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Cask. Light body, smooth, light bitterness, grassy. A bit boring after drinking a half.

Scopey (12503) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Cask at the King’s Head in Mayfair. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The aroma is earthy, brown bread, toffee and biscuit. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, malt-driven, brown bread, biscuit, toffee, toasted nut and some orange marmalade on the back-end. Finish is dry. Medium body and soft carbonation. Well-rounded and rather drinkable bitter. Decent.

WillRunForBeer (2269) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Cask pour at St Georges Tavern, Central London. Pours medium dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters. Flavor is caramel, grass and wildflower hop. Good balance. Bitterness persists after the sip. Not my favorite style, but this is good for what it is. No flaws.

katrinaez (1355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
It matches what a pale should be. Again very creamy to match the London styles. Orange amber color. Hops are light but present and then bitters show at the end. Nice. Tap in London.

mabuzzer (566) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Cask in Drum and Monkey. Amber colour with a thin but creamy white head. Fruity aroma, malty taste with orangey undertones. Dry finish. Decent house beer
