COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in the new Northern Alliance Series - cutting edge collaborations between breweries from the North. After packing in as much wheat malt as our mash tun could take, we used Citra hops, lemon grass and salted lemon peel to give you lip smacking awesomeness.

Bottle from Real Ales. Muddy light gold. Lively carbonation, fizzy. Nose is sea, blossom, lemon and yeast. Quite sweet, but moves into moderate lemony dryness. Lemon, sherbet, salt, elderflower. A little sweet and boozy for me but very drinkable.

Leighton (10544) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours mostly clear gold with a mellow, creamy white head. The nose holds zesty lemon, pale bread and ginger. Medium sweet flavor with rich, ripe lemon, some lemon candies, doughy wheat bread. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet and warming to finish with a bit more doughy bread, zesty lemon, sweet lemon meringue. Very nice stuff, actually.

Scopey (6326) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle at Bruce’s Birthday batch @Craft Islington. Cheers to Kenny! It pours cloudy pale orange with a small white head. The nose is earthy, wheat, salt, preserved lemon, must and earth. The taste is wood, doughy, earth, toast, ginger, lemon, candied peel and stew orange with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not a game-changer, but well-rounded and pretty drinkable stuff.

[bottle] Pours hazy golden, aroma is slightly salty, sweet, floral with the lemongrass and some peach. Flavour is sweet lemons, some slightly soapy floralness, and then after about thirty seconds, salt. Hides the alcohol well [24022014]
