Bottle and keg - force carbonated. Is available cask conditioned. Cold fermented and lagered.
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.

330 ml bottle served in a chalice.Lovely clear gold body with a white head. Grassy aroma, citrussy bitterness in the flavour, grapefruit and pineapple taste. Dry finish.

Aroma: when opening it was one of my favourite english hop smells. After that all aroma disappears into an average "beer" smell, at least in my case. Appearance: nice golden colour, off white head that disappears quickly. Nice and clear. Taste: quite pleasant, noble hops as expected, nice bitterness that lasts just long enough. Malty character is good but not outstanding. Palate: average, thick enough for a golden ale but a little too carbonated for my liking

330ml bottle. Pours a golden amber and very slightly hazy with a small off white head. Nose is pretty aromatic, sweet caramel malt with some hoppiness as you would expect from a Pale Ale. Unfortunately the taste is very average at best, initially its nicely malty and then the mouth feel is that of water, with a dry slightly hopy finish. Its not bad, tastes fresh etc but just very unexciting. @ 1.50 - 2 a 300 ml bottle was expecting a bit more.

I honestly believe that "cold fermented" is what does this beer in. Hops fail to shine and bitterness is hidden in the cereal malt.

No trial aroma, very bland. Easy to drink but taste is as average as the many bottles of "real ales" that appear in the local supermarket. Ive had from a keg and it was better but in the bottle it has been very disappointing.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Zesty citrus aroma. Dry, bitter and lightly peppery. Described by my father-in-law as Summer Lightning with attitude, which summed it up nicely.

Couleur : blonde, presque dore. Col blanc peu pais, bulles assez fines. Armes : malt, lgrement houblonn. arme de fruits. Equilibrs et plaisants. Palais : lgre amertume et lger got de malt sur lattaque, puis eau plate, et pour finir lamertume du houblon plus prononce en fin de bouche. Trs lger got de fruits et de noisette en cherchant bien, mais cest surtout lamertume qui lemporte sur le tout. Verdict : malgr des aromes fins et prometteurs, en bouche cest surtout lamertume qui reste. Jadore les bires lamertume trs prononce, mais ici jai limpression quil ny a pas grand chose dautre. Plus une bonne bire de soif quautre chose.
