Beach Blonde Pacific Pale Ale
Highly quaffable at 4.4%, it has a brilliant straw blonde appearance.
Its tantalising tropical aroma of mangoes, grapefruit and lychees come from our unique blend of New Zealand, Australian and West Coast American hops. The upfront bitterness gently yields to a light malt body provided by barley that is sourced solely from farms around the brewery.

Pour is light as expected with a tiny white head. It’s drinkable but there’s not much else, refreshing.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Who’d Ha Thought It, Rochester. Drinkable blonde, but lacking in character and interest. Decent aroma, but a bit lacking in flavour and body. OK.

jjsint (771) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Cask @ Grapes, Oxford. Deep yellow-gold; fairly still with a bit of head. Aroma of white grape and pineapple, not overpowering but not weak either. Fresh and balanced initial taste, followed by a sour-bitter finish. Slight taste of soap in the aftertaste. Decent but not exciting. More hop aroma than your average UK golden though.
