Notes: Pale Ales are the mainstay of today's craft brewing scene, but they date back to the 1700s, when innovation led to the production of new and paler malts. Our interpretation brings the style back up to date, parking a crisp malt base with fresh American hops. Light, bright and fruity, The Pale Ale is our ultimate drinking beer.

On-tap at Marquis of Wellington, London, England

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a short head covering the surface that had good retention properties and never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of pale malts and floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of pale malts with notes of floral hops. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't overly flavorful.

Had only a half-pint on tap at The Swan. (It is the bar attached to The Globe and we were doing our monthly culture outing to see Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor. Don't miss it ! ... or Anspach's Pale.)

While this Pale has average Looks and Smells, its Tastes are very pleasant and typical of how the EPA style uses hops properly. This sat in mouth so subtly that I could pair it with a sharing board of cheeses, biscuits and pickled stuff.

I went on A&P's website and they are just starting up. But their taproom is under the arches of the trains coming into London Bridge, now my new most favorite station on the planet. So I think I pay A & H a visit on what its now becoming known as Bermondsey's Brewers mile.
