MEANTIME – LONDON PALE ALE

MEANTIME

LONDON PALE ALE

Review by Rob

MEANTIME SAY…

One hundred and fifty years ago the new bitter beer style, Pale Ale, was so popular that brewers had to import Californian hops to meet demand. Meantime London Pale Ale continues that tradition by combining lots of American Cascade and Centennial hops to give it a complex citrus aroma and buckets full of local Kentish Goldings to provide the bitterness that makes the style so refreshing. Together they conspire to assail the nose with a complex, heady mix of  spearmint, grass and ‘hop sack’ aromas, fruity citrus flavours and a bitter finish that makes pale ale drinking a truly rewarding experience.

THE TASTE

THE VERDICT

It could do with a little more strength and depth, perhaps a reserve version and we’d be talking. Certainly looking forward to sampling more of Meantime’s offerings, despite those couple of niggles, this is good and comes recommended from me.
