Friary Pale Ale is a smooth golden ale with sweet maltiness, complimented by citrus and pine flavours from the hops. It pairs fantastically with grilled or roast meats such as juicy burgers or succulent roast beef.
The term “pale ale” was first used around 1703 for beers made from malts dried with coke. Coke is a fossil fuel derived from coal. Wood and peat fires were traditionally used to roast malt, which gave it a smokiness and a brown colour. Coke-fired maltings produced a lighter variety of malt without the smoke and a lighter coloured beer.
