Ingredients: Pale ale malt, pale crystal malt, and Munich malt: Cascade, Cluster, and Goldings hops.

One hundred and fifty years ago the new bitter beer style, Pale Ale, was so popular that brewers had to import Californian hops to meet demand. Meantime London Pale Ale continues that tradition by combining lots of American Cascade and Centennial hops to give it a complex citrus aroma and buckets full of local Kentish Goldings to provide the bitterness that makes the style so refreshing. Together they conspire to assail the nose with a complex, heady mix of spearmint, grass and ‘hop sack’ aromas, fruity citrus flavours and a bitter finish that makes pale ale drinking a truly rewarding experience.

Tap at Prince of Teck, Earl’s Court on 11/07/2017. Clear, brown/amber body. Floral or soapy, quite crisp taste.

(330 ml can) Pours a clear golden beer, with a foamy white head. The aroma is very traditional: light English hops, floral notes, fresh grass, nettles, biscuits, oak, corn, bready malt, a slight sulphur note, and some bitter earthiness on the finish. Moderately bittersweet throughout, and a light-medium mouthfeel. This is a fairly traditional English pale ale: quite pleasant in its own right, but not full of flavour. It could be more interesting and better blended – definitely better from the bottle.

the aroma of fir tree and a little fruitы. Not intense aroma. In taste the same and also a bit watery.
