Name changed from Old Brewery Pale Ale to Organic Pale Ale in 2011.
Ingredients: Water, malted barley, yeast, hops.
Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); best barley malt, yeast and aromatic hops; fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create a full, rounded flavour and after-taste.
Best served at about 51°F (11°C).

NobleSampler19 (2093) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 10, 2019
UPDATED: APR 10, 2019 Und noch ein Pale Ale aus England. Hier findet man einen schön würzigen Kern aus Malzigkeit und einem frischen Abgang. Ist nicht schlecht.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2019 Very English in character - that is: bready malt, with a light gun-metal stale astringency (which I personally love), and just a hint of hops (compared to ‘hops’ as we’ve grown accustomed to on West Coast). Blindfolded, I would’ve pegged it as an English ESB. The code on the neck indicated that this bottle originated 9 months ago. Not good, and yet not bad considered some of the horror stories I’ve seen re: Samuel Smith & other English breweries.

Craftakt (586) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2018
Karamellig süßliche Röstaromen, Vollkornbrot. Leicht bitter. Einigermaßen rund aber nicht überragend.

NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2018
Dark amber, with a typical (lovely!) best-bitter smell - the aroma emphasis is on the malt, though it's hoppier than some other examples of the genre. There's fairly good bitterness and a bit of dark toffee in the flavour, but I'm somehow missing a little depth - maybe because of a slightly 'salty' finish, or because of a faintly sour touch I register. In the bottled version, carbonation is just a hint too heavy-handed for my liking. All in all, this one isn't really for me, though it's by no means an awful product.
