COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A very pale and hoppy ale. Brewed using only the Chinook hop, mellow bitters make way for a distinctive citrus aroma.

BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
25th April 2015: gravity poured half-pint at a beer festival in the Duke of York, Lichfield. Another citrusy blonde, fed up with them. This was not as bad as some, but I would like brewers to move on now and leave this fad behind. Scored objectively.
