Review and Tasting
Sampled on 19/12/2018
(sample bottle best before 24/Aug/19) Clear, light golden amber with thick white head and good lacing.
Bready and yeasty with grassy metallic hops.
Light to medium-bodied. Crisp, clean and refreshing with brown bread and sweet corn-like maltiness balanced by grassy hops.
White crusty bread and lightly bitter grassy metallic hops.
How similar this modern-day version is to the pale ale brewed from the original 1868 recipe we’ll never know. I’d wager its cleaner and, with modern day technology, more consistent. Its certainly tasty and refreshing with creamy mouthfeel and well-balanced malt richness and hop bitterness.
