I picked up this pint of Newby Wyke Brewery White Squall at the local Wetherspoons where the brewery were doing a tap takeover. As Newby Wyke are based in Grantham, home of Isaac Newton no less, which is just a few miles from me this is very much a local offering. The brewery have been operating for over 20 years now so they're pretty well established. Newby Wyke Brewery White Squall is an award winning 4.8% pale ale, and it really is very pale. Once White Squall settles it's so clear it almost looks like a flat lager with its clear body and decent white head.
Newby Wyke Brewery White Squall has a mild floral aroma with some citrus notes. As you would imagine this is a pretty light feeling beer and quite a refreshing one. There's clearly plenty of hops in here creating a light zesty citrus pale ale that doesn't really have a particularly outstanding taste. It's one of those beers that will quench your thirst, but it's not exactly going blow your mind. Newby Wyke Brewery White Squall is a solid, if dull, pale ale that deserves a solid, but dull 6 out of 10.
