Whitbread Pale Ale

I note this appears to be contract brewed in the USA and it is certainly significantly different to how I remember drinking it maybe 10 years ago at home (England). Perhaps that’s as a result of the stateside brewing, or maybe just changes in the beer over time, but in any case this beer has changed since I last drank it.

Very nice looking pour, with a distinctly amber body and a full, lingering head with some nice lacing. This is a good looking beer.

Very much more malty than I remember it. In fact it was more “Bock” like than anything else. Very surprising. Decent dry hop finish too, this is still a good beer despite changes for the worse over the course of the last ten years.

Nice full mouthfeel as well, very drinkable.
