NOTE: As explained by the brewery in the commercial description, this beer is often made to varying recipes with different hops. Please make sure you put your review under the correct entry. The hops used are clearly identified on the label so theres no excuse!

Everyone likes a pale ale and were no different. We like to mix up the aroma hops a bit and you will find that Pale Fire comes in different versions sometimes. We have hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo, Amarillo and Citra, Nelson Sauvin and others including the legendary Hop X, an English trial-hop being developed by Dr Peter Darby at Wye Hops.

Draft at Craft Beer Co Covent Garden. Slightly hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is orange, tropical fruits, maybe even a touch of smoke which I didnt expect. Flavor is decent, quite citrusy, some sweet malt and citrus hops. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent.

simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Pure white, rocky head stayed well on a hazy light brown still body. Tropical fruits aroma - quite sweet. Medium body - feels full & airy in the smooth. Medium carbonation. Crisp on the back. Sweet tropical fruits to the fore with melon, peach & haribos . This quickly dissipated over the tongue slightly bitter, spicy back of grapefruit, pith & mango.

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2017
Small, just off-white head over low carbonated orangey-golden beer. Muscat grapes, lunaria, nectarine, passion fruit - initially very aromatic, fragrant hops. Warming up, unfortunately also ureum and manure. Quite bitter, ink, galls. Faint ureum, chalk, vegetable bitterness and green fruit. Spritzy carbonation (not visibly so!), counteracting the very dryness. Light body, hopoil slick. In the end - quite nice! Thanks, Jezza!

On tap at MK, delicious light citrus nose. Pours clear with a full, off white head. Taste is all citrus, grapefruit, papaya, lots of tropical. Light bitter back that nicely balances the big flavours. Clean body. Not the first time Ive drank this, still love it.

LazyPyro (917) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2017 330ml bottle. Hazy murky orange-brown colour, looks like muddy water, thin off-white head. Aroma: hoppy, fruity, spruce, wood. Taste: tropical fruit, citrus, pine, wood, kind of powdery and chalky... Nice bitterness though. Soft carbonation, medium body.

Bottle in beer subscription box. Legacy rating. Pours hazy straw coloured with thin watery head. Aroma hop forward with some molasses, grapefruit, spruce and faint nuttiness. Really well balanced and with a slight fizz.
