COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, it’s actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co EC1 London 28/07/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head. Nice and hoppy although there is a bit of papery thinness I find with such low ABV hoppy beers. Good citrus notes. A bit of lime. If it had more body would be truly excellent.

OMG! What a great session beer. Worth every penny. And I found it at the local grocery store in conservative Sweden. I wish just that more craft breweries would try to make more low alcohol beer with lots of taste. Getting pissed is such a waste.

Jow (2175) - New York, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Tap at the Bat. Pours orange with nise resinous tropical fruit nose. Tastes of grapefruits, passionfruit, resin, pine, and some light malt. Nicely carbonated with lovely mouthfeel. Delicious.

Tselloufc88 (137) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Huge pungent aroma of tropical fruits and grapefruit, it’s like a massive hop bomb is in store here. Looks nice in a pint glass! Taste is medium bitter, tonnes of grapefruit present with a slightly spicy finish. I like this, it’s refereshing and jammed full of flavour. For something that’s 2.8% it’s a pretty remarkable effort. Well done Siren.

This is a lovely low alcohol beer for taking it easy on a sunny day, fruity, not too bitter, be careful of the sediment at the bottom due to it being a malt heavy beer, it’s clear unless your getting near to the bottom and then it gets cloudy, no head, carbonation or lacing really, kind of mustard yellow colour, another sterling job by siren thanks guys, bottle at bottle shop.
