General Thoughts:
East India Pale Ale is a really nice, deep flavoured beer, strong in hops flavour, which I think is fundamental in a Pale Ale, the more hops flavour the more depth for me. This beer has a bitterness to it, giving it that moreish quality, the quality that makes you sit and think about the beer long after you have drunk it and makes you want to go back for more. This is a smooth beer, with little to no carbonation, making it a really easy drinker, especially as you are not left feeling bloated after you drink it, this also means you feel like you can drink more of them. This beer also has a slight bitter after taste, along with a slight citrus note coming from the hop varieties that have been chosen for this beer. The citrus notes help to give the beer a refreshing quality, thirst quenching. East India Pale Ale is strong in flavour and has depth to it, there is not an overwhelming taste of alcohol to this beer, which is a great surprise considering it comes in at 6.9% ABV. This beer doesn't taste as strong as it is which shows there is a real balance to this beer also. On the whole East India Pale Ale is a really nice, enjoyable beer, deep and full in flavour, leaving you refreshed with a slight warming quality coming from the alcohol content. Overall I really enjoyed this beer and would recommend this to you all to try.

€3.00 (Based on Average Price)
