Is Blood Orange Pale Ale any good?


I had some trepidation when I bought this can of alcohol-free beer but truth be told this ale was pretty good. When it first hits your mouth you get a refreshing hoppy beer with bitter notes and a background flavour of tangy orange which isn’t overwhelming. I would have liked a bit more carbonation to the beer but the taste is pretty decent. Certainly, one to enjoy during the lazy, hazy days of summer.

Aroma & Appearance

On the nose, you get some hoppy bitter aromas emanating from the beer. When poured into a glass, as you can see it has a light amber look with low carbonation and a short frothy head.

Bonus points

This alcohol-free blood orange beer has only 0.5% ABV and is suitable for vegans. It’s also worth shouting out the great design of the beer can, loving those 60s, beatle-esque coloured circles. The best place you can find Brew By Numbers alcohol-free pale ale is from the online specialist below.
