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.

Leighton (20792) - London, Greater London, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours just slightly hazy but vibrant gold with a rich, lasting white froth head. This smells gorgeous, with loads of fresh citrus fruits, tangerine, juicy orange, some dry grapefruit. The flavor doesnt quite match the nose in terms of goodness, but its decent. Lightly sweet with a mellow citrus character, hints of pine needles, some pale malts. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Fresh and clean to finish with suggestions of white wood, lemon, tangerine, pine needles, pale malts, and grapefruit. This one starts like a rocket but fizzles out a bit as you work through it. Very drinkable, but Im left feeling this beer could use a jolt.

Davros IX (300) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Keg. A typical craft Pale Ale, with a nice cloudy appearance and plenty of piney hops in the mouth and on the nose. It woke up the palate and was really very nice.

Buoni e invitanti profumi di frutta tropicale. Al palato si ripresenta la frutta tropicale e le pesche ma senza emergere. Beverina ma un po banale.

Keg at Mother Kellys, Bethnal Green, London, UK. Colour is pale yellow, with a nice white head. Aroma is cereal, citrus hops, floral, pine. Good. Taste is not as good as the aroma. All is poor and a little bit watery. Light sweet and light bitter. Body is light, carbonation is fine. Not so good...

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.
