In the 1800’s, England shipped beer to their colonies in India. To survive the journey, it was made with a higher alcohol level than most beers of the time and hoppier than normal. Our beer follows this tradition, but using the latest methods to make sure we produce a consistent drop. In adapting this to the modern age we use a blend of the new world American hops to achieve a unique aroma and flavour.
The “Pale Ale” refers to the colour compared to the other beers of the 1800’s, so it is light coloured despite its full body and flavour.
The strong citrus and piney aromas from the hops give you a hint of the flavours to follow.
This is a fuller bodied ale with a strong hop flavour. The strong bitterness is balanced against the full malt flavour leaving a pleasant finish on the palate.
