Sunshine Gisborne Pale Ale (330ml Bottle)
Kiwis love their pale ale so we’ve given it a Gizzy twist. After rigorous testing and a heap of tasting (someone’s gotta do it) we’ve come up with a beauty. It’s smooth and creamy with a mellow maltiness and just enough peppery hop for a clean light finish. It pours a pleasing brown copper colour with a persistent head that clings to your glass for ages. Probably longer than the beer lasts inside your glass. Because this pale ale is hard to sip slowly.
English Pale Ale
Classic English Pale Ales are not pale but rather are golden to copper colored and display English variety hop character. Distinguishing characteristics are dryness and defined hop taste, but more malt balance than what youll typically find in an American Pale Ale. Great to drink with all sorts of meats including roast beef, lamb, burgers, duck, goose, etc. Note that the term pale ale is used in England to signify a bottled bitter, and in that way there is no such thing as English Pale Ale to the English. The style is a North American construct, borne of the multitude of pale ales that pay homage to these bottled bitters - Bass in particular - and therefore the majority of true examples of the style are found outside Britain.
