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 there’s no excuse!

Everyone likes a pale ale and we’re 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 (21879) - 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 doesn’t quite match the nose in terms of goodness, but it’s 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 I’m left feeling this beer could use a jolt.

Drank on tap at Craft Beer Co, London, init. Very refreshing pale ale, hints of mango and passion fruit. Not too gassy.

Craft Beer Co., Covent Garden. Tap. Foamy cream, hazy pale yellow. Grass and green papaya nose. Clean, lightly bitter fresh cut fruit sip. Fairly tropical, with lime. Snappy, clean but delicious sip. Fair coating, medium bitterness. Some melon, gourd, grass. Nice beer.

Pours muddy pale amber with a sparse head. Nose is citrus and some earthiness. Taste is very much the same. I always tend to find pressure drop beers have this characteristic earthiness regardless of hop variety. Okay, but wouldn’t drink again.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Leicht trübes Gold im Glas mit starker weißer Schaumkrone. Fein abgestimmtes APA ohne übertriebene Restbittre.

Davros IX (424) - 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.
