Brewed using a combination of specialty barley malts, wheat and a traditional top fermenting German yeast culture, Cross Knot is a continental style bright ale that exhibits lager like smoothness due to an extended conditioning and moderately cool fermentation. Clean and crisp, with soft herbaceous and mellow notes, it is complemented by mild bittering from a traditional ‘noble’ hop variety up front, and a southern hemisphere zinger on the nose. A session Ale to its core.

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
On tap at Green Beacon, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out cereal notes and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with a dry palate full of cereal and biscuity notes. Clean and easy drinking. Solid for the style.

Westkyoto77 (616) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Grill'd, Brisbane. Looks pretty ordinary, wet pale pissy off-gold. Funky sourish nose of citrus, grain and sea salt. Crisp, light and dry. Refreshing, but a touch too sour. Spicy and light bodied. Ok.

Jado (759) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap. Came a slightly hazy gold with a half finger of lasting white head. Aromas of white bread, lime and gentle spice. Taste starts off with sweet malt followed by a citrus zest bitterness in the mid palate. Light, crisp finish with a mild fruity aftertaste. Pretty good for a lighter style beer.
