628: Volden | Palace Pale

20191023_210818The Brewery: “Volden Ltd brewed its first ale in April 2015 to supply Antic pubs exclusively with their own house beers. Our philosophy is to brew high quality British ales using best ingredients we can source from as close to London as possible..………. Our malted barley is Maris Otter grown in small fields in North Norfolk. Maris Otter is highly regarded as the best ale malt in the world. Our hops are all grown on English farms and we combine traditional with newer varieties that suit our beers’ flavour profile. Our yeast is a strong top cropper that allows us to pitch from one brew to the next ensuring quality and consistency.”

The Beer: “Straw coloured, light bodied pale ale with a long hop finish”

Rebranded - I assume - from the core Volden Pale, this was very easy drinking and I found the hops didn’t linger too much. Not my favourite from my latest visit to London but that’s down to the style of beer rather than quality. 4.6% A.B.V. Related entries
