Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the lightest of the English styles. This Pale is brewed with Biscuit and Wheat malt to give character with a light color. A balance is struck between the E. Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops and the malt to create a very drinkable pale that any pub owner in England would be proud to serve.

Enjoyed at the brewery, review is from notes from two weeks prior.

Hazy golden orange body with a thin head. aroma and flavor match up well with herbal and metallic notes in both with a bread and caramel malt background. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not too bad but hard to be memorable in this genre. Metallic presence hurts drinkability a bit.

Slightly hazy orangish colour with a dense, off-white head. Some chunky lacing throughout. Very mild aroma with notes of toffee and grassy hops. Medium bitterness, biscuity malt, and floral hops. Light fruit in the middle, followed by a bit of caramel in the finish. Medium/light bodied with light carbonation. Quite smooth. Easy drinking, quite tasty, and very English. Not bad at all!

Yellow-orange hue, almost like a burnt straw. Good consistency and thickness. Nice balanced hop/malt aroma, with just enough hop prevalence to know your drinking an IPA. Hop aroma was balanced with malt undernotes.

mouth feel was great, a little thicker than some IPA's. Very nice balance with the taste. Nice malt undertones, with classic IPA dryer finish.

Overall very solid IPA. Nice to have a "controlled" IPA given some of the Imperial or "super-hopped" IPA's that are some prevalent know.
