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.

Bottle to snifter @ White House, Luton
Lekko zamglony kolor w odcieniu złota i żółci. Bardzo wysoka, puszysta, ubita jak białko piana. Bardzo długo przykleja się do piwa. Pozostawia na szkle mnóstwo znaczków. Krążkowanie wzorowe. Aromat umiarkowanie słodowy, cytrusowy, kwiatowy. Mamy tutaj dojrzałe mango, grejpfrut i morele. W smaku ciasteczkowa podbudowa, potem owoce cytrusowe z grejpfrutem i mango na czele. W ustach i na podniebieniu wyczuwalne również sosnowe igiełki. Goryczka średnia. Wyraźny cytrusowy, chmielowy finisz. Pełne ciało, zbita zwarta struktura. Smaczne i wysoce pijalne piwo.

Sampled from a can from Prohibition Wines. Slightly hazy golden colour with a white head. Fruity aromas and a taste of malt, citrus and mango with undertones of wood and pine resin. A full taste with a lively bitterness. A really good and highly drinkable APA.

From the Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Very pale in appearance, with just a lacing of foam. Nose is light, clean, slightly biscuity malt. Palate is excellent: hoppy, light, refreshing. The carbonation is a little too much for my taste, but that’s a very minor quibble.
