Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); best barley malt, yeast and aromatic hops; fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create a full, rounded flavour and after-taste.
Best served at about 51°F (11°C).

Some skunk and metallic hops mix with sweet malt in the aroma of this clear copper beverage. Body is somewhat sweet with light caramel and brown sugar flavors. Metallic hops accentuate the malts. Decent, but there isn’t much going on here.

Lighter and smoother than other bitters I’ve had. This is good stuff. Average amount of hops. Pours tan with a big head.

IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAY 10, 2004
A clear light brown, orange color with a tan head. Fortunately, not skunked. Rather surprising being it was shipped all the way to Japan! Sweet specialized malt scent. Sweet with a dank basement quality, a pleasing mild hop bite. I can see this being a pub favorite.

This may have been a bad bottole, as it smelled pretty stunky, but tasted ok. Fair amount of bitterness and some fruit, but the skunky scent overpowered any other flavors that may have been present.

walleye (1102) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2004
amber with off white head fruity some bread. got some carmel and fruit and bitterness

Sammy (13000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2004
A pleasant ambour color with nice creamy white head. Proves that pale means traditionally, an ale that is not dark but ratehr clarified. Astringent, bitter taste but modified by food.

TakushBrewer (19) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2004
This is my first rating of a beer on Rate Beer, and i love it! A classic English Pale Ale, with great palate. Delicious.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2004
Clear amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, fruity, some bread, some floral. Taste is mild sweet, fruity (peach), some caramel, floral, light spice. Medium body.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2004
This is about the best English pale I've ever had. Fruity, malty, smooth as silk with a slightly bitter finish.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2004
Has a pleasant aroma, but not special, small but lasting head. Amber color. Has a very ver dry, but nicely hopped taste.
