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.

Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is semi soft and semi dry with fine carbonation. Good malt base, a little caramel and lactose sweetness. Decent hops strike a good balance - piney citrus but pine dominates. Minty coolness. Medium bitterness. Finishes dry with a bitter linger. Outstanding debut beer - this is well balanced with a nice earthy grounded feel about it that reminds me very much of early Kernel.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours hazy dark gold with a small, frothy white head. Nose holds some rich, toasty pine, dry pale malts, dry citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor, some sticky pine, light dry leaves, some pithy grapefruity and orange, toasty bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly resinous to finish with dirty pine, orange, dry bread, citrus rind. Quite a nice little APA here. Pretty hefty pine character.

Bottled 14/02/14. A golden coloured beer with a big bubbly white head and lace. Nice tropical citrussy fruity hops in the nose. Very bitter in the mouth. Good sharp hops and nice pale malts. A bit too bitter really for me but doubtless a well brewed beer.
