Thirsty Thursday: Pale Ale

Thirsty Thursday: Pale Ale

This style was first created in the 19th century. Brewers in Burton-on-Trent were looking to produce a paler, more consistent style of beer. Then came along, the Pale Ale.

All very different. After trying each beer we gave each characteristic, aroma or flavor, a score from 0 to 10. Here are Harry’s thoughts on the beers. 👇

We found there to be a lot more variation within the Pale Ale categoty, not only in flavours but also in appearance and texture. As far as the body of the beer went we found DEYA’s ‘Steady Rolling Man’ had a much smoother slight fuller body in comparison to many of the pale ales, in particular The Kernel’s ‘Table Beer’. We found the Table Beer to have a more crisp, clean texture. Quite similar to many of the lagers we drank last week. Although the flavour of the ‘Table Beer‘ a lot different to the lagers, big citrus fruit notes and a slight herbal finish.

Of course, everyone tastes beer differently but here is what Harry thought of all the flavours and characteristics between the 5 Pale ales
