COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
The yeast strain used for the brewing of the pale, dry American Ales is specially imported from the USA, along with Cascade and Centennial hops, to produce this pale ale. The low colour Maris Otter malt provides a perfect light colour and dryness to complement the crisp taste and full aroma of the hops.

A few pints at the Schooner Gateshead. Slightly hazy gold, with a thin, enduring white head. Familiar aromas to the style of citrus, and tropical fruit. Grapefruit flavour, more fruit: sharp, juicy and pleasingly dry in the finish. Rather delicious.

Alla spina. Aroma erbaceo e fruttato dal luppolo che bilancia un iniziale miele millefiori. Al palato ancora aromi fruttati non molto puliti ed intensi. Non in gran forma.
