Usually I'm not a serious lover of Pale Ale, but this was good, and Mr.R is a big fan of Pale Ales and he liked this brew very much.
I thought it was pleasant, it had a nice bitterness, and a hint of spice and pepper in the finish.
Mr.R said it had a decent bitterness, with a touch of citrus, and a pleasantly long finish, he gave it 7/10.
I haven't got a photo of the actual beer, just the bottle
The beer vanished in the blink of an eye - odd ;)
Or was it the tilt of a wrist? Slurp! Burp! Gone!
From the label -
Named after the 106th Brigade of the East India Trading Company who later became the 2nd Batallion of the Durham Light Infantry. This type of beer was drunk in India at this time.
Very pale Maris Otter Malt and traditional English Goldings hops replicate the original pale bitter.
Bitterness is robust but well rounded with a spicy peppery finish and heady alcohol esters.
This ale is bottle-conditioned.
There is a live sediment which continues to mature and develop the flavour and character.
Store upright and pour gently to avoid disturbing the sediment.
Natural; not filtered.
Store at cool room temperature and serve at 10 degrees C.
This beer may be lively so have a glass to hand when opening.
Food match: Curries and other heavily flavoured foods. Also steak and chips.
Contains water, barley, wheat, hops, and yeast.
Suitable for vegans.
3.5 UK units.
