Commercial Description

Our ENGLISH BAY PALE ALE has a smooth, mild flavour brimming with West Coast character and a caramel malt aroma. A true pale ale, it gets its perfect balance from natural carbonation and careful maturing under the watchful eye of our brewmaster.

    341ml bottle served in a weizen glass (best served in a snifter or a pint) around 6 degrees:

    Pours a clear mahogany holding very little carbonation. You get no more than two fingers of a coarse tanned head rapidly depleting to a porous layer. You get some smal spottes lacing here and there.

    The nose bursts out roasted and nutty notes with a molasse sweetness. Hops are faint with a mellow floral presence but I had a hard time getting them so the malts really dominate here.

    On the tongue, the brew is brown sugar, roasted cereals... well pretty much like a bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar! Hops do get through with a distinctive yet not aggressive floral element and I thought it paired well the roasted/sweet aspects, sort of giving the brew a wild crop taste and some well needed bitterness.

    Overall this brew is a very nice try out. I found it t be a merging of a English Brown Ale and a mellow Pale Ale thus offering something new and inventive. This one would get along with some nice BBQ'd porc with a sweet marinade. Cheers!
