COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
3.8% on draught, 4.0% in bottle.

A very hoppy and refreshing bitter, brewed to celebrate the revival of the brewery, and meant to revive you when you need it. Light in colour but not flavour thanks to a blend of Pale, Lager, Cara, Crystal and Wheat malts. The hops are a blend of American varieties, with American-style yeast providing a crisp finish. For a beer relatively low in alcohol it has a very full flavour and drinks well above its strength, earning it a multitude of awards and setting the standard for the style. A modern classic!

ACD (670) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2013
66cl bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Pours hazy amber/orange with thin off-white head; not too much lacing. Aroma gives plenty of lemon and lime, grapefruit, woody notes, slight earthy mustiness, and spruce. Taste hits the palate with a big dose of citrus fruit, some pithy grapefruit, pine resin, woody notes, slight caramel, and some earthy, dirty hop character. Very tasty and assertive. Crisp semi-dry bitter finish with plenty of pine, citrus and earthy hop notes lingering on the palate. Mouthfeel is medium/thin, carb is light. This is a brilliantly refreshing pale ale - another modern English brew that really shows that low ABV does not have to mean dull, drab and tasteless. Full of flavour and highly sinkable.

laiti (5966) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2013
75 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 20.03.2010
Aroma is hoppy with citrus, exotic fruits and caramel. Flavour is a bit disappointment after that – it feels a bit thin with toffee, caramel, some fruity hops and biscuits. A bitter in American way.

Light and refreshing by modern craft standards, this has a solid inner core and a fine balance between the malt and hop.

Gramoit (365) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2012
One of the more easier beers to drink, and with lots of flavour. Great balance, nothing bad about this beer, would be my go to beer, if it was cheaper and more readily available.
