Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned. AKA Hereford Pale Ale.
HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. It’s smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish.
Locally grown Target and Styrian Goldings hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer. With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.

Cask (handpump) @ <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/england/birmingham/ target=_new> Wellington, B2, Birmingham. Clear light orange color with a small, virtually none, off-white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, flowers, citrus, fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Very nice and refreshing. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Pint at the Ship & Castle, Aberystwyth - pours a clear pale yellow straw colour with a very small fine white head. A light lemon citrus aroma, a hint of straw and light malt. A rich buttery taste, light sweet biscuit and light bitterness in the finish.

A nice light coloured ale with a slightly grassy, hoppy flavour and smooth texture . Perfect for a lazy Sunday in the pub.

Rune (12623) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2016
Cask ale at Wellington, shared with Finn. Low, bubbly head over a bright golden body. Modest malt-fruity nose. Mixed taste of grainy malts, peaches and lemon. Leafy bitter end. Easy going (Birmingham 21.09.2016).

Draft - clear pale straw yellow with thin white head. Light lemony aroma, good mouth feel. easy drinking, good taste and finish.

berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2016
50cl bottle from Marks & Spencers, Camberley. A pale straw coloured pour with no head; musty citrus aroma; some life in the mouth with a lemony citrus taste and a grainy body; and a light grassy bitterness to finish. A rather uninspiring pale ale.

Straw color. Yeasty aroma with bright hops. Very dry and bitter. Bright hoppy flavor. Hoppy finish. Good, not great.

Vladivostok (483) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 Very, very pale. Any paler and it would be water. Not a huge aroma and the initial flavour is a sourness which mellows into gentle dry malt. Not over-blessed with flavour or finish but this is nonetheless a pleasant and refreshing beer with no real vices. 5/4/17 - tried this again. Think it’s even better than I first thought so have re-rated slightly over-riding the categories above. Sometimes a beer is more than the sum of its parts.
