COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
As the name suggests, we’ve used just one variety of hop in this pale golden ale. Brewed with just low colour Maris Otter malt and a little wheat for head retention, we’ve selected some of the more “interesting” hops and added several bucket loads to each brew. Currently we’re using one of our favourites, NZ Motueka. Expect a tropical citrus twist, with hints of lemon and lime.

Alexi91 (225) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Origin: Tap. Vessel: Tumbler. Supplier: The Christmas Steps (Bristol). Pours a murky gold with small head. Nose is sweet and citrusy. Lemon flavour is nicely balanced against dulled hop bitterness. Mild carbonation. Well blended sweet and bitter make this a very drinkable beer.

A huge fruit bomb hits the tongue from the off followed by a more subtle bitter finish. This hop is amazing & this beer takes full advantage of its taste. Rated by BrewTom
