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.

I bought this bottle from one Monoprix in Paris. I drank it yesterday at home after the Galicienne. It is a typical pale, I could say more American than British, classic like a piece of theater of Shakespeare, refreshing. The color is orange/copper, regular carbonation, thin and white head. The taste is bitter, good for the throat after a long day in the mine or the manufacture, hop, malt hidden by this flower, the final is a bit watery, a bit fruity, not bad.

Vom Fass am Lido in Venedig an einer Bude! Orange-goldenes Bier, fast ohne Schaum. Klassisch englisch eben. Grasiger Duft. Antrunk metallisch Herb. Grasiger Hopfen. Langes herbes Finish. Mir etwas zu spröde und metallisch. Mir fehlt Frucht und Hopfen.

Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Similar flavours, not much sweetness, some bitterness.

nazzty (1376) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2017
Excellent brew with a good balance between the malty base and the bitter hoppy flavors. Recommended!

Drunk at Yellow house on draft. Not much to it fairly bitter tasting and passable appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kalkone (23) - BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2017
Une pale ale anglaise des plus classique, légère et houblonné. Une bière moyenne dans la lignée de tant d’autres.

peponi (1842) - Hannover, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2017
Aroma: herbs and flowers. Appearance: clear golden color and white head. Taste: flowers, medium herbal bitterness, pellet, dry. Palate: łów body and medium carbonation. Overall: rather average beer, nothing special.

Idiosynkrasie (7440) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey, pale golden colour with small to average, frothy, osteoporosing, white head. Rather weak and expressionless, pale malty and slightly fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of hay and orange biscuit. Taste is slightly fruity, mild bitter hoppy, hints of gooseberry, a grassy touch, minimally sweet, pale malty basis.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
33cl bb2017-9 from Waitrose. Clear bronziah orange pour, fizzy with macrobubbles qnd head. Almost odourless: some cellared toast, diluted orange rind, whiff of minty pine. Mainly diluted toffee and generic orange rind, like in a lagerified Anchor Liberty, with no expressive quality at all - it seems to strive towards watery cleanliness foremost. The perfect argument against large chain distribution and/or macro sellouts when they include the recipe?
