COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised and artificially carbonated bottle.

A classic Pale Ale this is a product of one of the UK’s oldest breweries. Whitbread Pale Ale is malty, almost sweet, with a moderate caramelly bready taste, but balanced with very moderate hops. Whitbread Pale Ale is pleasant to drink and recommended for those who think they don’t like darker beers.
Whitbread Pale Ale goes great with food and even cheese!

Pours a dark amber with a big off-white head. The aroma is caramel and toffee, but faint. The flavor is a slightly sweet mix of maltiness, a touch of noble hops come at the end. Mouthfeel is smooth.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Hazy amber, medium tan head. Estery, seet malty nose. Rahter thin, with sweet light malt flavor. Not much in the way of hop flavor or bittering. Wonder what it tasted like 30 years ago on draught in England.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2005
Bottled, Pasteurised, 500 ml. Amber colour with good head, highly carbonated. Cardboard malt note, damp and musty followed by boiled vegetation. Poor indeed.

An amber color and white head. A light aroma. Has light taste with some malt and hop bitterness. Not much aftertaste.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Bottle: Not a good combination - bad malt and not enough hops. Watery; sour finish; unpleasant aftertaste. I won’t be back for this one.

I would basicly say this is the raw burn of bottled ales, its week watery burnt malts thats it, no hops at all. carbonated like a lager too, terrible.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Bottle from Beverages and More "beers of the season" 10-pack. Sweet and fruity aroma that smells like twizzlers licorice and canned red cherry. Sand colored head, and a orangish brown appearance. Flavor is a little fruity of artifical cherry, and slight malt background. Certainly a weak and poor beer and the alcohol content proves it.

SilkTork (5161) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 Dec, 2004. Bottle bought in Ben Arthur’s Bothy, Arrochar because the pub served only keg beers and cold bottles. This was out of the fridge and quite chilly so the beer was mostly bland, however some stale cardboard bitterness managed to linger unpleasantly. To be fair, beers like this are not designed to be drunk on their own - they are mixers. Rating them on their own seems so wrong. [1.9]
Sept, 2006 Bottle bought in the George Inn in Gravesend to mix with the cask Brains. It was a bizzare notion. Hmmm. Anyway, it’s sharply carbonated. Thin flavours - modest fruit and cardboard. [1.9]

Ungstrup (29063) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2004
[Bottle at Wenlock Arms, London] An amber beer with a small orange head. The nose is very hoppy while the flavor is dry hoppy and a little roasted. Nice without being something special.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2004
Bottle. Quite industrial in flavour. Sharp tinny and gassy, with not much in the way of hop or malt in the flavour. Sweet and not much happening. Thanks sully.
