Created shortly after the brewery moved site to a tennis club pavilion, this ale is extremely pale. The flavour is well rounded using primarily First Gold Hops and Cascade to finish.

Bottle.My first from this brewery. Blond with a small head. Fruity with hops in background and a bitter finish. Far more complex than I expected and an above average bitter.
