I love this beer – and I always remember the first time I had it. It was unromantically delivered in an Ocado delivery a few years back amongst my more regular choices, and sat in the fridge untouched for a couple of days as my regular stock gradually depleted.
Before I knew it Sunday lunchtime had arrived, and I was considering my pre-roast beer with extreme care – a very important decision (those who love a few beers before their Sunday roast will concur)! And there it was with its lovely looking artistic and utopic green label and organic charms.
From pouring it into an appropriate vessel I knew it was going to be good – you can sort of tell from the way it comes out the bottle and the aromas it gives off. And then the first sip… wow! Lovely grapefruit and piney hoppy flavours in abundance with the perfect bitter finish. This is one of those craft beers that all others probably aspire to be. Grab one and see what you think
The beginning. A classic. Our most popular beer.
Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.
