COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

Very pale straw coloured pour with a thin white head. The aroma is amazing - bright aroma with a nice lemony citrus aroma and a bit of herbal and kiwi aroma. Fresh and fruity. Very bright and clean. A zesty and very tasty brew. Delicious.
