Strong Pale Ale
Strong Pale Ale is a brilliantly bright brew that legend has it was inspired by the vision of the bright early morning sun sending its golden shafts of light through the brewhouse window and onto the oak mash tun, inspiring the brewing team to brew a beer that echoed these hues.
Historically this recipe was formulated with 100% pale malt and was bittered by the brewery’s signature East Kent Goldings hops, resulting in a golden, brilliantly bright, hoppy ale which has risen Phoenix-like from the ashes of time for the modern drinker to enjoy.
According to brewery records, this beer was first brewed sometime between 1825 and 1855, making it our oldest Classic Collection beer to date. Although we’ve rejuvenated it by using the modern hop variety Cascade, we’ve stayed true to the spirit of this great pale ale, which was hugely popular in its day.
We’re very proud to be able to revitalise unique brews from bygone days to share with today’s beer drinkers.
