COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a complex mash of Marris Otter pale malt, Rye, Caramalt and Wheat.
A shed-load of American hops provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt, whilst delivering a charcteristic peppery Rye flavour.

TET (1438) - FINLAND - APR 10, 2013
A nice colour, light orange, a head is medium, long-lasting and blond. A roma is fresh and inspirating, citrusfruits, tropical fruits, mangos and some fructose, in the background there are balanced biscuity malts. A taste is biscuity and quite dry, some tropical fruits, medium grapefruity bitterness. A grapefruity sourness, quite dry and long aftertaste. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nice to drink. A good beer with low alc.%, enough of tropical fruits and bitterness.
