COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ubiquitous Pale Ale. The workhorse of pretty much any modern brewery. The brief we gave ourselves for our flagship beer was that it should be able to be sent to any bar in San Diego and to stand proudly alongside the many great Pales produced in, and around, the west coast of the US. The schematic for a West Coast Pale Ale is bucket loads of big US hops, full malty backbone and a characterful yeast. That is what this Pale Ale is all about. Enjoy as fresh as possible. Beer pairing: Everything, all of the time.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Pours from can a rich golden amber with a rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of tropical fruit and caramelised biscuit. Mild carbonation with a lingering malty fruit salad flavour explains why these guys got bought out by an industrial factory looking for flavour.

Can from Park Fever, Hither Green. Dark amber pour with a white head. Nose of mango, honey, pear drops. Flavours of bitter citrus, vanilla, pear drops. Long bitter finish. Tasty.

Parmenion777 (364) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 On tap - Pours an amber colour with a small lasting near white head. Aroma is fruity with some light malts, sweet citrusy with some piney hops. Taste is biscuit malt, some citrus flavours, grapefruit, and a good piney resinous hop bitterness. Very good.

PabloZab (1720) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Can 330ml. Clear dark-golden colour. Medium white-greyish head. Medium lacing. Aroma is fresh, delicate sweet with tropical fruits note and small note of green apple. Light body, light bitter, semisweet in aftertaste, quite refreshing. Average APA.

3.3
szagi (201) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 28, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Tap. Very hoppy, nice high bitterness, not really an easy drinking one and quite demanding for a Pale Ale. Still I like it

YantarCoast (1564) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 25, 2017
355ml can from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is mangos, malt, fruity hops. Taste is medium bitter, tropical fruits, malt, resin. Enjoyed it a lot more than their IPA.

3.9
jinroh (2377) - ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2017
Can from Brewdog Tallinn. Pours light amber, some quite persistent off-white foam there. Nose is somewhat nondescript, light malt character, some hops but they have started to fade a bit. Taste reveals really nice malty, toasty, nutty backbone, still light and still well balanced with hop bitterness. Liking this pale ale a lot, really delivering what I expect from the style, not a session IPA but decent, well made pale ale. Dry nutty-herbal finish Wow, this one is really good!

Juks (1114) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2017
Tap at BrewDog Tallinn. Clear caramelly colour,white head stays. Aroma is juicy, herbal, hoppy, fresh. Taste is caramelly, herbal hoppy, birch and sauna. Why it reminds me sauna? Medium bodied, quite lively carbo. I can drink it, not bad.

Tap (Brewdog) 5452102.6

Messy hoppy aroma, must be mosaic here. Rich orange, small tight head. Watery palate, fizzy carbonation. APA yeast dirtiness in the taste, dry harsh malts, even harsher hops. Finish harsh and acrid. APA not for me.

3.4
suurjuust (3811) - ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2017
Tap. Dark amber beer, small white head. Nose is mildly sweet, warm herbal notes, almost like a sauna, malt. Flavor is fairly smooth with a healthy amount of hops. Lingering hop bitterness. Easy to drink.
