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.

The aroma of tropical fruits, grass and flowers. The taste is the same but with a little citrus and caramel. Lovely bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Absolutely stunning good beer that gets me to extend to summer already. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

wheresthepath (1753) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle at the Fisherman’s Cottage, Reading. Pours a rather murky pale amber with a middling white head and a very light fizz. Loads of hops here- grapefruit, flowers and pine are the flavours they give, with maybe a shy hint of mango. The hoppiness makes it more of a sipping beer than you’d expect for this strength. It maybe lacks a little richness in the mouth and could do with the malt showing through a bit more, but that’s a criticism I could level at many APAs. Overall though this yet another fine beer from Siren, with a particularly long-lasting and pleasant floral hoppy aftertaste.

Clear amber with low head. Honey aroma. Sweet, fruity taste. Fresh and balanced bitterness.
