Zeeland Finders Keepers - English Pale Ale (500ml Bottle)
A British IPA variant based on the life-sustaining IPA’s of those heroic 18th Century entrepreneurs who charmed their way around the world exchanging trinkets worth pennies for land worth billions. Naturally, one of the trinkets they traded was the fine IPA itself and some would argue that these well-hopped and malty beers were worth trading the odd bit of coastal property for. Not people with any business sense obviously. Zeelandt Finders Keepers is based on an 18th century recipe that uses only pale malt and Goldings hops.
English barley Marris Otter, hops grown in East Kent and brewing yeast from Burton; this ale will have you singing ‘Rule, Britannia!’ before the foam settles.
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.
