COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Mind bending ale.
A pale straw ale with a fruity zest, a slight orange citrus undertone combining with a mixture of hops to provide a dryish hoppy finish. Brewed using Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand to add a distinctive fruitiness.

Crisp, mild ale, light on the mouth and full of flavour. Perhaps not strong enough to warrant itís title.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Cask Conditioned Handpump Wellington Birmingham. A light blonde coloured beer with a white head. A dishwatery yeasty aroma with a bit of lemon. Way too yeasty in the mouth with an attempt at light hopping but it doesnít really work. I had no idea there was NS in this and Iím still mystified why the yeastiness was so prevalent.
