Meantime London Pale AleNeedless to say (I assume) the name Meantime relates to the fact that this brewery is based in Greenwich.  The Greenwich Brewery, home of the Meantime Brewing Company, is located a mere 0° 2′ 12″ East of the Greenwich Meridian.  Their London Pale Ale (4.3%)  is the first of Meantime’s beers I have tried, but based on this one, I’ll be looking to try some of the others (maybe even the Raspberry Grand Cru, although I’m not generally a big fan of fruit beers).

The London Pale Ale is very aromatic due to dry-hopping with “bucketfuls of Cascade and Willamette hops” – in fact they claim that they add 4 hops 6 times – now that’s quite a recipe.  There is an orangey tang to the smell, and the sharp bitterness and orange zesty tang continues in the taste, and it finishes with a mild fruity sweetness.  Very tasty.
