3 Ravens Tropical Pale Ale is tropical, herbal, resinous. Slightly hazy. Light a fresh. 3 Ravens Tropical Pale Ale shows the best of modern Pale and Pale from 10 years ago.
3 Ravens came to life in 2003. If I remember correctly, it was originally a tiny brew set up for an Engineering firm. But they loved the beers and turned them in a commercial product. Their original brewery used to shop with me so I was an early supporter, but the beers have changed a lot since then. They are one of the best ranges of beers I have tried. Oh and the 3 Ravens Juicy is probably my favourite beer to drink.
When pale malt became available, brewers could make Pale Ales not just brown Porter and Stout. English Pale Ale is often dry, malty, bitter, with hints of hop flavours. New World Pale Ale can be anything. They used to be all the rage but IPA is now the darling of brewers. Most modern Pale Ales are around that 5% abv on the lighter side, fresh with a sweeter, hoppier outlook.
