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. .?

A lovely beer - served from tap at The Cock, Hackney - quite dark amber for a pale ale, with beautiful vanilla aroma and flavour as it enters the mouth, a lovely fruity flavour in the mouth and a grapefruit / light marmalade aftertaste. Thoroughly recommended, and not too strong either, at 5.6%.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 My 13.99 take two fuck u deleting my shit i dont care if its nonsensical..@@@@@@
Magic Rock are impressive and their beer resides @ my local often ... An above solid APA rendition that was a prop to showcase a "hoppy pale ale" to a novice ale drinker friend of a friend who i was drinking with @ the Magpie pube Brentford, who asked to me to recommend him "some hopppy shit" . "Woah ,shit is bitter,Gary" Mike exclaimed as the dude winced and looked confused on first sips ."Yeah, mike ,do you taste the lychee ?" . said I as I swilled Rochefort 6 like a jaded beerbro .
not sure if Mike will be drinking pale ale as a rule now , he got a pint of San Miguel lager to wash away the bitterness and side effects left to his tastebuds , but i guess its a reflection on his novice palate and the aromatic quality of this humble pale. i injured my leg latter in the eve. Rochefort fucks u everytime . Mike should try some.
