Our winter season pale ale, hopped with Australian Galaxy to give citrus and passion fruit flavours and a clean crisp finish. Yet another lovely hoppy pale ale.

Cask conditioned handpump Friends Of Ham Leeds 28/11/12. A golden coloured beer with a golden head. A spritzy zesty noce. Sharp citrussy hopping in the mouth but it comes over as overharsh. Also seems a bit thin. Disappointing for Redwillow sadly.
