The Mid Atlantic Ridge is where two tectonic plates meet at almost the midpoint between America and Scotland. With this Geological symmetry in mind, we’ve created a union between American amarillo and British hops to produce a distinctive US style ale with Scottish origins, quaffable with a seismic depth of flavour.
Hops East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, Apollo, Amarillo
Malts Wheat malt, lager malt

bbertels (263) - NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Bought at Tesco, St. Andrews. Sometimes it is not necessarily a good idea to mix -- in this case aggressive American hops with more aromatic British. In this case it has produced a somewhat bland pale ale. OK but not more than that.

Clear pale gold, small white head that qiickly disappeared. Hoppy with a strong pine aroma. Taste is overwhelmed by an oily pine bitter finish.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
September 20, 2014 (I won’t say where) - keg. Pale gold with a creamy off-white head. Simple aroma - moderate alcohol, but mostly fairly lush grain and fresh funky acidic UK herbal/floral hop bitterness, some pine; light. Taste follows, has a real lager-y heather character trying to assert itself; sweet and "green" - big hops, but very fresh, and funky. Slick mouthfeel, average body, fairly astringent and carbonated - slightly longer than medium-length finish; some west coast grapefruit pith comes out in the linger; pretty solid, if light.

MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle @ THT August, courtesy of Scotty001. Pours a clear golden beer with a quickly disappearing white head on top. Aroma is rather soapy, perfume and floral. Flavor is very light, some bitter touches, faint vegetal hops. Soft carbonation, light bitter aftertaste and overall not too interesting.

Scotty001 (474) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2015
