COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

COLOUR: Pale
HOPS: Citra
PRODUCTION STATUS: Brewed year round, always available.
DESCRIPTION: An infinitely satisfying pale ale, brewed with Citra hops from the USA for a punchy hop presence. Since its introduction in 2011, Infinity has rapidly become one of our best selling beers and is perfect for lovers of modern style ‘hop forward’ beers.
FACT: Infinity is named after the ‘Infinite Monkey Theorem’, which states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually type the complete works of Shakespeare!

500ml bottle from Ales By Mail

BBE 08/2013 - Pours golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, grapefruit and grass. Taste is hoppy and mildly caramely with notes of tangy fruits, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Finish is bitter and slightly malty with some tangy notes. Okay, quite basic but tasty pale ale.

A while back I took the wife, before she was the wife, to the monkey park near Stoke. On the way I told her about the underwater monkeys, and the glass tunnel you walk through whilst said underwater monkeys swim by, all around you. I thought nothing of it until at the end of the trip she expressed dismay that we had come to the end without seeing the underwater fellas. I’m sure she would be dead chuffed to know that I’d shared that on here. If you got a load of monkeys sat at a typewriter chances are at some point they’d type something about a beer tasting like someone has had a dump in your mouth. This beer is nothing like that, very clean. I love citra.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013. Very pale in looks, weak urine yellow in fact: good white bubbley head that tried to stay the distance, but failed. As you’d expect from a brew using Citra hops, this leaned heavily towards a citrus based flavour and aroma. I know this beer is very popular with a lot of Real Ale drinkers and craft beer fans alike, but I’m fed up with so may ’samey’ tasting brews using citrus flavours to refresh us Brits: I want deep amber brews with a malt and hop balance when I go into a pub, not this ’new wave’ of light lager look alikes with lemon duck toilet cleaner as a base! I’ve tried to score objectively.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Bottle. Pale amber, not much head. Not a great deal of aroma. Citra heaven. Too easy to drink.

Juuicy and tropical with a hint of natural sweetness. Fresh flavours. Sharp citrus in the nose. a bit of a bitter sting joins it in the mouth. A good depth of flavour. Lovely. Score 3.8
