COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled; Regular.

Brewer’s blog: "New beer brewed today, Wreckless, a very hoppy / aromatic 4.8% Pale, loaded with Citra and Amarillo hops, looking forward to this one, should be lovely. Think it is time to start brewing at full length rather than the 50% I’ve been running at until now. Update : Just had a quick taste of Wreckless, massive amounts of citra and amarillo tropical fruits coming through,very pleased so far."

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Cask, hand-pulled half-pint in the Old Red Cow, Smithfield London on 12th Sep 2014. Light amber body with a thin layer of bubbles sat on top. The aroma was of weak caramel and grassy hops. The taste also caramel malt like and bordering on sweet, some fruit notes came and went before a drying hoppy finish.

Skinnyviking (7150) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Medium high lasting white fluffy head. Hazy milky dark yellow body. Powerful tropical fruit aroma with a touch of lemon. Relatively hoppy fruity flavor with a high carbonation and a long dry an bitter finish. Quite tasty for a beer with such a low alcohol percentage. Well balanced and nice.

Rune (8209) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Cask ale poured into a half pint glass at York Tap. Filmy layer at the top of a near-clear golden body. Spotty lacing. Smell of grass and bread. Decent taste of pale malts, dusty hops and peach followed by a bittersweet ending. Easy to drink and easy to like (York 10.07.2014).

Barnoloid (219) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle poured into half pint glass. A very well made APA style pale. Solid, hop forward with a great balance of the Citra/Amarillo hops and a malt backbone that supports rather than overwhelms. Extremely drinkable at a decent ABV.
