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!

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.

BlackHaddock (3485) - 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.
