Corsendonk introduces new Monk's Pale Ale.

Corsendonk introduces new Monk's Pale Ale

The beer gods were kind in providing beer lovers with Corsendonk Monk's Brown Ale, and Phoenix Imports has announced that the gods will smile upon beer enthusiasts again in November, when Corsendonk Monk's Pale Ale will be introduced.

Known in Belgium as Agnus Dei (Lamb of God), this pale golden ale was described by beer critic Michael Jackson as "dry, with a great deal of finesse. A deceptively potent ale in the `Triple' style of Belgian monks.

Due to the yeast added to the bottles prior to packaging, those consumers that cellar Monk's Pale Ale will be aided in keeping their bottlings in order by a "Best enjoyed before..." date line at the bottom of the neck label on all bottle sizes. This line will be notched in two places, noting a month (March, June, September, December) and year (e.g. '92, `93, `94), approximately two years from the bottling date.

Like Monk's Brown Ale, Pale Ale bottles display the Corsendonk logo in an all-white design fired directly on brown glass. Bottle sizes include a four-pack of 33-cl bottles with crown finish and 75-cl champagne bottles with cork finish, and a corked three-liter bottle, containing more than eight 12-oz. bottles of beer.

Phoenix hopes to have the product, first bottled in August, on retail shelves by Thanksgiving.
