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.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar kopparfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av honung, frukt, säd och karamell. Väldigt försiktig, närmast anonym.

Hopverdju (1485) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2017
Helder amber/rood koperkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: mout, licht hoppig, wat snoeperig, ietwat hooi. Smaak: hopbitter, fruitig, bloemig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter. Verfrissend lekker.

330ml brown bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear golden with a small frothy beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, soap and a hint of caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light-medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, watery texture and average carbonation. Overall weak, watery and diluted, a beer possibly more suitable as a thirst quencer in warmer climates.

Lemon fresh to the fore. Easy drunk. Zesty . Hops hay grass. What more to say?

Cool_Bond (2791) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2017
Minimal aroma of fruity. Bready and minimal taste. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth long while. No good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle from the Coop. Reduced to £1.23 for quick sale. If “London” Pale Ale means “almost no flavour” this hits the target. Bullseye! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Average pale ale, not very hoppy, slight herb notes, malty, drinkable but not very exciting. Far from terrible too, dry finish
