We’re both excited and overjoyed to announce that all Nicholson’s pubs are now proudly serving Nicholson’s Pale Ale, brewed exclusively by St. Austell just for us.
Beautifully crafted by world renowned master brewer Roger Ryman, this is a classic cask conditioned English Pale Ale (4% ABV), and represents both companies’ passion and drive in delivering quality ale which can be enjoyed in the typical British pub atmosphere that Nicholson’s offers.

Very nice pale ale not overly bitter. Very quaffable. Highly recommended.

Pyrmir (6196) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2014
Cask at Horniman at Hay’s. Amber color with no head. Aroma discreet, malty, earth and liquorice. Taste is malty and well balanced with a nice bitterness.

NeilMcL (7) - - JUL 31, 2014 does not count
Cask fresh on at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow, 23/7/14. Light malt and floral hop aroma, dense white head reflecting somewhat high carbonation of first pint served from cask; hence, good lacing. Fine balance of biscuity malt and light hoppiness, good body for its gravity, with a mouthfeel suggesting a stronger ale; reminds me of a good pint of Theakston’s Best Bitter.

Mr_Pink_152 (5400) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Pint from The Crown, Brewer Street, London, W1. Amber colour with a small white head, hops and malt aroma, taste is bitter with citrus and hops with a bitter finish.

MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals meet mineral notes in this slick, drinkable brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cleae golden.
-The mouthfeel is quite suave. One of the beer’s best features.
-Hops are a bit shy to my liking.
-This remains a finely drawn pint that is light years ahead of the macro lager they serve next to it.

On cask at The Pump House, Brighton.

3.5
Sigmund (7818) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2017
Cask pint at the Crown, Belfast. Deep golden colour, white head. Moderate malty aroma. Dry flavour with a decent balance between the malts and the earthy hops.

3.4
Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Cask at The Globe, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear gold with a small, fluffy white head. Basic golden ale here. Plenty of dry straw, bits of dough and citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, a bit of zesty lemon, straw and biscuity malts in the finish. Very basic, refreshing beer. Nothing wrong here.

3.4
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Pump House Brighton 21/05/12. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Decent orangey hops throughout. Good citrus flavours. A nice body. A touch of tropical fruit. A good quaffing ale.

3.4
Beersiveknown (5301) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 17, 2012
Crown Belfast, barely touched the side. Pale golden with pleasing peppery citrus bitterness and light malt caress. Spot on condition
