COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned and keg unpasteurised; Regular
A 4.5% pale ale with spicy, grassy aromas and a taste of grapefruit and apricot. Undercurrent is part pale, part oats and part caramel barley. Her swirls of bold, bready and nutty malt whirl into a concoction of spicy, citrus, floral hops. Mystery lurks in those cascade and palisade hops. Her silky, creamy body will pull you under.

My Bottom Line:
This Pale Ale’s full cereal profile is endowed with flowers and blood oranges, as tea-like bitterness gains traction with every sip .

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the clear amber.
-The flavour profile is nicely balanced.
-Drinkability is optimal.
-Malts share a tad of honey.

On cask at The Prince George, Brighton.
