Brewer Description: (from bottle) A true classic that won’t go out of fashion, the Classic Pale Ale is designed to be versatile – you can drink it all day and in all seasons. With an elegant balance of European malts and new world hops, this has just enough fullness balanced with zesty and crisp hop flavour to suit all palates.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 30th June 2017, poured into a Mikkeller pint glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger foamy white head that had great retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: A bit weak, but what I do get is lightly biscuit and toasty with tropical pineapple, citrus grapefruit, lemon and pine.
Taste: Biscuit and mango with hints of pineapple, orange zest, pine and grass. Finish is lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice Pale Ale that is easily drinkable.
