Pale Ale.
Very popular pale ale with a grassy bitterness, sweet malt and luscious floral aroma.
This is a pale ale of 4.5% with Fuggles used as the main bittering hop – then late hopped for a luscious floral aroma. Our biggest selling beer!

panzerwolf (278) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2015
A body of hops, with herbal and floral taste thrown in. Just the briefest bit of bitterness and a lingering taste of hay. Okay to drink, really, a pale ale with some character!

500 ml bottle. (K-Citymarket) Jyväskylä, Finland.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Grassy and floral hops, mild bitterness, malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is biscuity malty sweetness, some hops and mild dryness. Very English all the way.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Golden colour, head dies fast. Taste has malts and hops in an English Pale Ale way. Quite OK, but nothing special.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2015
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pale, but a full spongy head, and sticky lacing. Lovely crisp fruity citrussy hop aroma, with gentle pale malts behind it - just what I want from a pale ale. Sweeter and fuller malts in the mouth, a bit of toffee, quite biscuity. Very refreshing palate, pleasant carbonation. Lovely biting tingly citrussy hop finish - I feel it making my teeth go metallic. Super quaffer - this really was glug, glug, gone.
