COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as ’Dead Pony Club’.

Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma of american hops. Pale with big head. A bit thin, but very good for its low ABV level.

ben4321 (5477) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Draft at Brew Dog-Birmingham, 6/1/16. Orange, beige head. Drippy lace. Clean, bitter flavor. Minimal malt back. Very clean and sessionable. Pretty dry, quick close. Could drink a ton of this.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
Habja szinte alig. Színe gyönyörű, mély borostyán. Az illata rendkívüli, nagyon erős gyümölcsös, citrusos, almás jellegű, már-már almaborra emlékeztető. Az íze enyhén citrusos. Azonnal érezhető egy határozott gyantás keserűsség egy pici olajossággal, ami folyamatosan fennmarad a hosszú utóíze végéig. Testes, ugyanakkor gyenge sör.

younghomer (7) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2016 does not count
Punchy aroma of zest, mint, apple & hops. Fresh feeling. Citrus, lemongrass and malt dominate the taste. Appealing metallic, lemongrass and sherbert aftertaste. Dry on the palate with strong carbonation. This would be a welcome accompaniment to barbecue food. Summery and uplifting.

BeerandBlues2 (11824) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Draught at Brew Dog Brussels. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus and pine hops and medium cracker malt. Flavor is moderate citrus and pine hops and light bitterness, medium cracker malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Lots of flavor packed into 3.8%! Beautiful hop profile and a decent body makes it super sessionable. Great brew to have around for BBQs/gatherings.

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours mid amber with white head fading to cap. Great aroma of ripe mango along with some dank pine. It’s all a bit watered down and underwhelming but, for a beer below 4% it delivers good flavour and decent balance. Maybe a bit more bitterness at the end would keep things going a bit longer.

Medium kullsyre. Veldig mye citrus. Mye humle. Rar aroma (humlen?). Ikke noe spesielt.

Erzengel (7323) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2016
Many thanks to Eike. Great floral intense piney nose. Floral intense beginning. Intense but weak in body. Grainy fresh with floral piney aroma. But the nose is more intense than the taste. Floral but grainy dry aftertaste. A bit disappointing.

330 ml bottle. Pours amber with an average white head. Strong hoppy aroma of flowers, citrus and stone fruits. Light to medium watery body with soft carbonation. Starts with low sweetness and bitterness and finishes quickly with moderate bitterness. A nice light ale.
