COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.
Previously a trial brew now regular.

Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Citra
A fresh, zesty, aromatic pale ale brewed with malted barley, a little wheat, and Amarillo, Centennial and Citra hops from the West Coast of the USA. The British ale tradition collides head first with the best of the US craft beer movement, resulting in an incredibly drinkable Pale Ale with tonnes of US hop aroma and flavour.

Bottle picked up from Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon. Consumed at home, Sunday 2nd November 2014. Pours gold with a chill haze, white filmy head. I think the hops are a little quiet and shy here, both in mouth and on nose. Tangy, fruity and smooth, bitterness is picking up, perhaps I was being harsh on the hop front. I am not a big fan of this, some pithy lemon. Ok A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov11 2.9

Gravity at Bartons Arms, Bartons Arms, Bartons Arms, Birmingham. And so forth. Rather a delicious beer. Grainy PA, plenty of sidewalk hops, with a fawcet of plural clean grain and fender-bashing sunshine. Replete.
