COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Ale
Want to learn about hop aroma? This is your beer. Delightfully aromatic with complex yet refreshing flavours . It’s big bold aroma shouts hop freshness . The flavours deliver a mildly spice and citrus/passion-fruit hint. A definitely full flavoured beer that tethers and balances together in harmony.

Take the blandest beer you can find, add lots of hops. That about sums this one up, though they are some good hops, I’ll give them that. Other than that, it’s nice to look at, but where’s the length?
