COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Kita (1420) - Koper, - JAN 9, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Hazy pale golden color with small but thick white head and soft visible carbonation. Outstanding fruity hops aroma, combined with more tropical fruits, citrus and lychee. Taste starts with refreshing citrus, then followed by sweet tropical fruits and light spicy maltiness, while finish is very hoppy. Full body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Unforgettable aroma...

Strong fruity/flowery aroma. Pale yellow with slight white head - low carbonation. Ok on tongue and leaves fruity bitter taste in mouth. Nice beer.

Strong Citra Hop Aroma - as to be expected. Clear pale golden colour, looks like a lager, moderate carbonation, looks very thin but this isn’t much of a problem. Powerful resinous hop notes, extremely well balanced beer with a real great alcohol flavour - the 4.9% is not hidden well and the beer is all the better for it. A fantastic little brew that is a great thirst quencher, leaves you wanting more.

Bottle from B & M Bargains. Poured clear. A pale golden yellow colour with a lasting white frothy head. Bursting with fruity and floral aromas. Packs a punchy flavour from the citra hops and some sweetness comes through. Dry, bitter finish. Ace.
