COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
FRINGE AMERICAN PALE ALE is a dry, pale golden, 5.3%, hoppy pale ale using Chinook and Amarillo hops. The dryness and soft body are driven home by an almost dank Grapefruit pith character. If you just read the last sentence and thought “my goodness that doesn’t sound like a Pretty Things beer”, then this one truly is our “fringe” beer. Fringe is the sort of beer you crack a bit cool on a hot day in the yard. Don’t save it for a rainy day though – drink it now.

airrick2003 (846) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Appearance: pours with a large light beige head, the beer is a slightly lighter than average gold color, slight haze, head settles into a very nice density with great head retention Aroma: biscuit, bread, straw, wheat grain Taste: wheat grain that’s taken over by a moderate bitterness, faint pine, Palate: light mouthfeel, lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste Overall: not bad, like a light wheat ale with a snappy bitterness, very sessionable, would be great on hot day, could use more complexity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle share at Leighton’s 15K. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy pale orange, very lightly sparkling, small foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is cereal, spelt, Weetabix, straw, soft fruits in the background. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is dry and chalky, minerals, cereal and Weetabix, touches of pine and citrus. Pretty decent and certainly unusual.
