COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

MannyGoldberg (164) - The big bad LDN, Greater London, - OCT 25, 2012
Keg at Stormbird, Camberwell. You all know the deal with this one. Have to say this is much better on cask. The flavours and aroma come through a lot more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Dorée-orangée, col blanc. Arôme malt grillé, rétro houblonné fruité tirant sur un léger tropical mais au rétro-nasal donnant qcq notes nobles d’où ressort un peu plus d’amertume houblonnée. Palais est houblonné, malt pâle et grille le tout restant assez anglais dans la base avec une petite note de levure en retrait. L’amertume qui reste assez noble dans son ensemble s’apparente plus à une bière anglaise.
