Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Slight hazy gold with a big big thick off white head. Wow The carbonation keeps going. OK, it’s an ok pale ale. Yeast and citrus hoppy aroma. It’s a highly drinkable pale ale. Interesting if a little over carbonated. It’s got some delicate light citrus and white stone fruit flavours. Man I love Italian beers, they just all seem so interesting and the flavours are always dead sharp. Not a huge finish. But it’s a simple blond pale ale with some interesting touches. I mean it’s the most interesting beer I’ve had today except Punk IPA which was excellent. Not huge flavours but definitely decent. Some bitterness on the finish. It’s a blond pale ale. Nice.
