The beer we produced is a 5% US/German style Pale Ale, using a UK Pale Malt/German speciality malt bill, Centennial whole hops in the hop back and then dry hopped with Hallertau Mittelfruh and Centennial in conditioning. We kegged it this week and we think its tasting great, really fresh and easy to drink with a light body and herbal/citrus almost ginger beer hop flavour, which should make for perfect summer drinking.

On tap at Oliver Twist, Stockholm as ’OT Rocks’. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth but shot through with prickly carbonation. Thin creamy malt supports decent hops - sweetish orange hops, little peel. Whispers of skunk and lemon. Finishes crisp. Super refreshing - necked a pint in about 3 mins!

Restrained pale malts in the flavor, light to medium sweetness, further dry grapefruit, some melon. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, lightly resinous, mostly citrusy hops with touches of piney and herbal bite. A great sessioner.
