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!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 It’s time to re-rate this beer now I’ve got to know it intimately and more important enjoy it intimately. This is really very well brewed. Unfined is even better. Some classic peach and grapefruit aromas and flavours from the hops, a caramel, biscuit body underpins it all but the hops are zesty, piney and vary from classic lime & lemon to orange, lemongrass and more. Amazing mouthfeel!

Cask @ gbbf, large sample. Hazy yellow to golden color, short head. Aroma is very hoppy, tropical fruit, citrus, peach, lychee. Lovely bitterness, refreshing. Just some grainy malt notes. Lovely beer.

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 31, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Bevuta @ Brasserie 4:20 (Rome) - Eccellente bitter, molto luppolata, complessa, amara ma non eccessiva, elegante, beverina e dissetante.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 21, 2012
27/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (cask). Ambrata viva con riflessi rossicci, limpida ma non molto brillante, con morbida schiuma bianco sporca. Al naso risalta l’elegantissima luppolatura, che dona aromi fruttati (mela, pesca), un po’ agrumati e appena caramellati. In bocca ha un attacco dolciastro, miele, caramello e un fresco finale amaro. Corpo notevole per una birra da meno di quattro gradi, consistenza oleosa, carbonazione soft. Fresca, elegante, morbida e beverina. Tra le migliori bitter inglesi mai bevute.

Bottled sample from mlcc. Straw colour. Knew I would like it as soon as I saw it. Light hoppy taste. Perfect summer beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Cask at The Magpie, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fluffy, white foam head. Great golden ale all around. Fantastic citrus character, light sweetness, robust bitterness, some grass, lots of grapefruit and citrus rind, plenty of dry straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Crisp, clean finish, fresh grass and grapefruit, mild pale malts. Very, very good stuff.

Pours clean golden although bottle conditioned. Thin white head that persists in the glass. It tastes very citrusy, bitter ending. Nice 660ml bottle, my to go beer!

Czy aby na pewno to bitter? Jak dla mnie to west coast APA, niesamowicie cytrusowe w aromacie, cudowna, lekko muskająca podniebienie goryczka, średnio wytrawne, cytrusowe, niesamowicie lekkie, pełne w smaku i pijalne zarazem. Warto!

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.
