Evening all.

Had a pint of Tempest Pale Ale in the Cask, Pimlico last week.
Even took a picture of the pump clip, dark blue listed as 4.5%.

Tempest pale ale is on the database as 5.4%

Emenation pale ale matches the ABV I had, but as I said the clip was blue and simply stated ípale aleí

Anyone any ideas?

If the ABV of the pale ale has changed from 5.4% to 4.5%, a shift of 20%, this would surely warrant a new beer as occured with London Fields Hackney Hopster.

Cheers ears.

Let me forward the link to Steve at the Cask and see what i get back.

I always say this, but if raters would note, brewery, name and % then we can finalise, as Angus McShuggletits is always bolloxin us ur shinanigans.

Got in touch with the brewery who replied ...



"Tempest Pale Ale 5.4% was released as a one off dry hopped variation on the pale ale 4.5. Emanation 4.5 was discontinued due to hop shortages and we re-branded as simply the ípale ale"



So looking at the reviews there is a significant gap from November to March in ratings where I reckon the new version was made.

Iíve emailed Ken to see if he has the ABV for the one he had.



Gavin at the brewery also said that the 5.4% could reappear again and isnít retired.

So its a different hop bill, so new listing. Iíll retire the 5.4 as it can be unretired if it ever reappeared

now added as a 4.5% version

I would imagine the first 3 rating down to Ken would be under the new entry Iíve just added.



Cheers to whichever admin picks this up.
