A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

Little head and nice light amber colour. Nice hops on the nose. Some maltiness as well. I get some yeasty tones as well. Taste is more malt and some pretty nice deep flavours of caramel and hint of smoke. Quite drinkable.

Nutty flavour that goes down easily. The hazel like colour of it gives it an appealing appearance.
