Weíre both excited and overjoyed to announce that all Nicholsonís pubs are now proudly serving Nicholsonís 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 companiesí passion and drive in delivering quality ale which can be enjoyed in the typical British pub atmosphere that Nicholsonís offers.

Cask fresh on at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow, 23/7/14. Light malt and floral hop aroma, dense white head reflecting somewhat high carbonation of first pint served from cask; hence, good lacing. Fine balance of biscuity malt and light hoppiness, good body for its gravity, with a mouthfeel suggesting a stronger ale; reminds me of a good pint of Theakstonís Best Bitter.

MartinT (9411) - 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 beerís 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.

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Cask at The Globe, Nicholsonís, London. Pours clear gold with a small, fluffy white head. Basic golden ale here. Plenty of dry straw, bits of dough and citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, a bit of zesty lemon, straw and biscuity malts in the finish. Very basic, refreshing beer. Nothing wrong here.

Clear golden beer with a thin head. Aroma is light and citrusy. Flavour is crisp, bitter citrus with a hop taste coming through at the back of it. Dry and refreshing.
