Beer of the day : Meantime London Pale Ale

47w ago

The glass says Aspall (a Suffolk-based cider and apple juice specialist) but this isn't Aspall. This is Meantime London Pale Ale and I've no idea why they used an Aspall glass. Anyway, let's just get on with it. Well, Meantime is an excellent Pale Ale brewed in London by Meantime Brewing, based in Greenwich. They say it's a bit "citrussy" and hoppy but I don't think it is. It is actually lighter and milder than you'd expect chiefly because, I suspect, the ABV is "only" 4.3%. This is the perfect afternoon beer because even though it isn't the strongest beer in the world, I still believe it doesn't really go with food and on the contrary, it has the qualities of the perfect "standalone" drink. So if it's 5 o'clock and you're in London, I guess it's either this or an afternoon tea.
