In a nutshell:
A hearty pale ale from Harvey's Brewery of Lewes East Sussex.
Named after one time Lewes Excise Officer Tom Paine, author of 'The Rights of Man' and one of those who influenced the American colonists who declared independence from Great Britain in the eighteenth century. Strong and well balanced, it's dry hopped with a robust bitterness and a full, malty palate to match.
