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!

AdiBeer (1088) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Aroma: flowers, grassy hops. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, small white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, getting very dry in the long finish. Overall: feels like a weak APA rather than a bitter, yet very pleasant. Pint at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green.

Golden colour, light head with some lacing A little citrus on the nose, but plenty of grapefruit taste Some people say too bitter, but I think it matches the grapefruit Pleased to see a 660ml bottle, and such a tasty beer at only 4% I’ll be getting more in as an afternoon or session ale

martjoobolut (725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 24, 2014
0,66L bottle, BB 30.09.2014. Aroma is rather weak citrus and some malt. Pours hazy orange-amber with off-white head. The head stays. Flavor is bitter, fruity, citrus, orange, grapefruit. Finish is mild bitter. Body is rather watery. Overall: ok brew. I would like to try fresher bottle, I suspect it would be a lot better.
