American Pale Ale
Leyton, London, UK
Signature Brew combine two things, music and beer. A brewery after my own heart. I’ve previously had a few of their musician collaboration brews including one with the lead singer from The Hold Steady. The brewery was founded in 2012 by Sam, Tom and Dave. This beer was sent to me by Beer52 and you can get beers like Signature Brew, plus many others by visiting their site and using KEGTODIFFER10 as you’ll get £10 off.
This American Pale Ale is the flagship beer of Signature Brew. They state that a pale ale is the perfect accompaniment to a gig and I couldn’t agree more. It has a real sweet smell and one that reminds me of British golden amber beers you find from breweries like Fullers, Dark Star and so on. It is a lovely golden colour and the smell is very pleasant and inviting.
The beer is quite creamy and the first thing I taste is toffee. It includes Cascade, Perle, Magnum hops and is a refreshing pale ale. I really like a hoppy pale ale and tend to steer away from the traditional golden pale ales you find. However this beer has a lovely taste to it. Having said that compared to other fantastic pale ales I’ve had this year (step up Adnams Mosaic Pale Ale) it doesn’t really compare. But it is a very nice APA.
