COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong pale ale that first appeared at GABS 2013 and that unifies the favoured hop of each of Burleigh brewery’s five members – “Galaxy (punchy Benny), El Dorado (sweet Mike), Citra (smoooooth Sean), Mosaic (complex Kieron), Belma (tropical Hawaiian Brennan) – and does so by striking a balance between the five of them.

Craft100 fest at Craft Clapham. Off piste thanks to Big Dave for bringing this to share. Hazy amber beer, decent pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and smooth with fine carbonation. Sweetish airy malts, some cream. Light tropical fruit hops in good balance. Finishes soft and airy with a little hop spice. Well put together and very drinkable.

maneliquor (3247) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2014
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden orange with a small white head which sticks a little. Very appealing nose of grapefruit and pine with some tangy citrus and bitter hops making way. Surprised by such a hop driven nose. Taste is all about the grapefruit sour tang and orange and lemon rind. Very citric with moderate pine focus to it. Slightly creamy and bitter on the finish. Probably a little too short to finish with would be my only qualm. Solid as drop
