NOTE: The recipe for this beer changed significantly in 2011.

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.

Keg at Buxton Tap, Buxton, Thursday 16th April 2015 Amazed that I have never had this yet (I probably have but never got round to rating) Pours hazy golden with a light filmy white head. We are both getting a bit of sulphour. Loz thinks it is a bit thin but she is on Axe Edge. I think that this is a really good session beer, a steady lilting citrussy vein throughout leading to a lengthy dry finish. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3

Lots of citrus in the nose and taste and a nice hop finish. I prefer this slightly to the Moor Top probably because of the Citra hops.
