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.

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.
