Pennine Pale is a traditional looking pale ale from Northumberland brewers, Allendale. It's a lovely golden yellow colour with a thick, bright white head that leaves thick lacing on the side of the glass.
It has an intensely fruity aroma, mainly citrus but with some tropical fruit notes and a hint of hops too. The flavour is unsurprisingly citrus initially but it combines with the hops and malt flavours to take the edge off the bitterness. It's zesty and refreshing without being too pithy and is one of the few citrusy ales I find palatable.
Quite softly carbonated, it has a smooth mouthfeel with little bubbles of bitterness bursting on the tongue. Pennine Pale is another quality ale from Allendale and a cold one would be perfect to quench your thirst on a hot summer day. When I fancy something a bit zesty, Ale Be Seeing You again.
