Our flagship Pale Ale winning Best Beer (Sheffield 1999) and champion beer of South Yorkshire in 2002. This golden ale's distinctive character is skillfully achieved by the subtle blending of triple malts and Cascade hops making this delicious drink a favorite.
Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt, lager malt, wheat malt. Cascade and Fuggles hops.

Quite bitter brew. Some notes of grape fruit in both aroma and finish. Palate of bitter fruitshells. Aftertaste mild with hints of lemon and bitter orange.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2004
Bottled. Pale golden ale with a large fluffy white head, holding broadly the spoils of its bottle conditioning. Big green hoppy aroma, I get what duff means when he says ‘hints of some sort of eggy sulfuric thingy’ but that works for me. Good clean crisp flavours transcend into a clean, simple, bitter finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2004
Quite interesting. Not quite an "egg fart" aroma, but theirs definitely hints of some sort of eggy sulfuric thingy happening in their. Very dry and bitter on the tongue, Orval-ish yeastyness and dryness. Salty, cosmetic, with some bitter lemon in the finish. Not sure if a like ti all that much, but its unique and fairly tasty.

Horrible rotten egg fart aroma, an absolute stink fest. However the flavour redeemed it somewhat with an unusal spicy orange flavour, a little bit of Belgian wit, with a little sourness and funk.

what a bizarre beer. an APA meets an english golden ale meets orval. sulfuric aroma like a burton pale, there's grapefruit from the hops, vanilla from the malt, and i could swear there's some bretty sourness in there which totally bewildered me. also peary fruitiness. not a lot in the way of malt guts, but the flavours are really complex. pretty damn weird - i liked it a lot. thanks duffer/per

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Transluscent, light yellow color wit a moderate white head. Aroma of aroma of lemon, bitter, almost like a Gueuze. Malt is absent in both the aroma and flavor - no sweetness to speak of. This might be and interesting session beer on a summer evening. Thanks, Per.

Pale gold colour. A very impressive pale ale. Not an IPA though. Quite intense bitterness throughout, but lots of hoppy aroma as well. Definite grapefruit tones characteristic of the Cascade hop. If you like your beers malty, you won't like this, if you like them bitter, but characterful, you will. I do. In a beer festival that was understandably (hottest summer for years) dominated by light coloured thirst quenching ales, this stood out for me. Great British Beer Festival, August 2003.

[Cask conditioned] Very nice and refreshing brew. very hoppy, bitter, fruity and dry.
