The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Purchased a few bottles of this from a discount shop. Had previously had this on cask. A very impressive ’session’ beer with lots of flavour. Citrus based taste, but not overpowering. Just as enjoyable in bottle form as it is from a pint glass in a pub. Easy to drink - no overt after taste - not fizzy. Highly recommended.
