English Pale Ale

DL Geary Brewing Company – Geary’s Pale Ale (English Pale Ale)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • This is actually not bad which is surprising for an English Pale Ale. Well surprising for me at least because I appreciate a generous amounts of hops in my beers and this one doesn’t have it. What it does have is a very smooth almost buttery taste to it. Well butter infused with hops and malts, I mean there is no question that this is a beer. Just a kind of muted one that is very drinkable. Decent but I am not really digging it.

Black Sheep Brewery PLC – Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale (English Pale Ale)

  • 4.70% ABV
  • You know just because you are using a gimmic to sell your beer doesnt mean you get of the hook if that beer sucks. I mean I love Monty Python as much as any one… The first time I saw the Holy Grail I almost had to go to the hospital because I laughed so hard I had a massive asthma attack (true story). Dont use my cherished memories to sell your ass tasting ale. This isnt shitastic but there is no way I ever want to try another one.

Fuller Smith & Turner PLC – London Pride (English Pale Ale)

  • 4.70% ABV
  • So in the past I have kind of shit all over English IPA’a and pale ales and now for that I apologize. Granted all of the other ones I have tried were indeed shit, this one makes up for them. It isnt the best pale ale I have ever had but it is good. It has more of a weird flavor than bitters but I think that is the point. My point is, this is good.

Bateman’s Brewery – Bateman’s Combined Harvest (English Pale Ale)

  • 4.70% ABV
  • Dear England, how is it that you invented Pale Ale’s and yet make them taste so bad? For real, what the hell is going wrong over there? This supposedly won a gold medal at the International Beer Awards but I am not entirely sure how because it tastes kind of like shit. It has a strong malt flavor but it is a sweet malt flavor. Bot sure how they pulled that of. Any way, I am giving this one to M1 to finish.

The Saint George Brewing Company – Summer Ale (English Pale Ale)

  • Unknown Goodness (I am guessing low)
  • It kind of smells like a skunk beer and the taste is a little off so I am not sure if I got a good one. There was a Nut Brown Ale in the same 6 pack that pretty much exploded when I opened it so I think something was wrong with the whole batch. Any way, I have like all of the other Saint George’s I have had so I am going to try this again.
  • ? Try again.

Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster) – Smauel Smith’s India Ale (English Pale Ale)

  • Average Goodness
  • Finally, something I am happy to drink. It seems like the past couple of beers I have tried have been crap and I was getting tired of it. Well no more, this is pretty good. I am not sure if it is the English style but it isn’t as bitter as an American IPA, not that I am complaining, like I said I like it.
  • + Buy again.
