A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

Cask @ Radical Road. Warm gold with tight head. Nice hoppy aroma is mellow. Great hoppy flavors--fruity--what kind of hop is that? Good sweet malts balanced by leafy juicy hops. Balanced and sessionable. Nice summer ale!
