A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

BeerNinjaUK (163) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Tasted some time ago - transfer from notebook. 330ml bottle from Honest Brew. Apperance when poured is pale ever so greenish tinged yellow, with a tall rich white chocolate coloured head with big bubbles left with lacing. Aroma of sweet apples, lemon sherbert and elderflower. Tastes more bitter than it smells, with lemon and lime to taste, slight black pepper and coriander. Tasty and refreshing.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - NOV 3, 2015
Golden, hazy to clear, with an average creamy white head. Nose is hoppy and flowery. Flavours are grassy, strawy, some lightcitrus, herbal hoppy. Semi dry with a long bitter finish. Average to soft carbonation, oily. A good and balanced hoppy pale ale.

corkyrory66 (1264) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2015
Special pale ale, refermenté, non filtré, non pasteurisé. Trois céréales : orge, froment et avoine. Houblonné au citra. Niveau abv de 4,1 %. Et, comme dit son brasseur : hoppy, fresh and light. Exemplaire à 9 mois d’âge. Couleur jaune citronné, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines par centaines, comme un perlé de champagne. Superbe. Mousse d’un blanc pur, épaisse, à texture ferme en haut. Sublime. Arômes avec les tropiques en direct par les fruits, et l’Angleterre par les blés d’or. Magnifique. 1ère bouche souple à la sublime entame malt/houblon, à forte dominante houblon. Arrière-bouche pointue, fine, précise, longue. 2ème avec ce magnifique houblon qu’est le citra. Arrière-bouche longue, fine et également complexe. 3ème au superbe ensemble malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche divine. Longueur qui explore toutes les nuances du houblon. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure fine et précise, belle ligne. Alcool léger, mais tout à fait adéquat pour préserver le citra. Finale élégante, racée. CONCLUSION : pale ale non seulement spécial, mais idéal comme le palais du facteur Cheval .. Blague à part, un extraordinaire pale ale …
