COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Some fresh hops in the nose but also a buttery twist. Medium body, sweet and heavily fruity, slightly phenollic with a solid hop presence. Nice hops alright but the malt bill and the fermentation is not all that hot. 280312

500ml bottle from Terre de Boissons. Clear gold thick white head. Sherberty hop aroma. Tasty slightly soapy hoppy beer. It’s fine, just a bit soapy is all. Hops are fine and sherberty if not exactly flavourful. Fine.
