COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our inaugural Pale Ale is an exuberant mix of malted and toasted barley and an obscene amount of New World hops added at every possible stage of the brewing process. Unfiltered and bottle conditioned to preserve all the flavour.

Idiosynkrasie (3853) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour ith average, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Nice fruity hoppy aroma has notes of tangerine, orange, peach, caramel malty basis. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, fruity and slightly bitter hoppy overtones. Sadly about a small scale trickle too sweet, minimally soapy hop finish. Nevertheless nice overall.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of strong floral hops, citrus and some mild sweet notes. Flavour of strong floral hops, malts, citrus, juicy exotic fruitiness and herbs. Harsh maltiness as well. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a strong bitter finish with juicy fruitiness. Well done, although a bit too harsh.

Osprey87 (1732) - WALES - MAR 19, 2013
March 2013 - cold bottle. The first beer from this new brewery. I was badgered into buying it from the person at the shop, who said that it is very good. I agree that it’s not bad at all - mild and balanced. A little floral. In fairness, it’s quite nice.
