We have a passion for flavour and a lust for hops — this frisky, fragrant pale ale is the result. Whilst consistency is (rightly) the benchmark of most beers, we’ve gone Wild with Fresh and thrown away the rulebook. Every six months we source some of the most exciting hops from both the northern and southern hemispheres, which means two hop harvests and two excitingly different hop profiles.
Given the unpredictability of each harvest we’ll leave it to you to discover the individual aromas and tastes, but you’ll be guaranteed a punchy hop character alongside an appetising bitterness and a crisp dry finish that will send you back for more. This is a beer we like to drink all through the year. We think you will too.
The first brew of Fresh has copious amounts of New Zealand hops in it. We particularly love the sherbet lemon aromas in the Southern Cross.

Can. Pours cloudy golden with big off-white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, some passion fruit, peach, white grapes, spicy hops and sweet pale malt. Taste has more grapefruit, orange zest, slight pone and light soapy hops. Not as fruity as aroma, but still clean. Light oily body with spicy light bitter finish, which quickly fades. Low carbonation.

On tap at bar maquila. With chicken with tandori sauce.Very drinkable. Soft palate and a bitterness that makes you starve for more.

tfredvik (1463) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2015
Very cloudy medium orange body with a small, off-white head that leaves some lacing. Rather strong aroma of tropical fruits and pine. Quite ordinary for A Wild Beer brew, I miss some wildness. Pretty strong flavour of slightly overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and resin. A spicy peppery background. Light sweet and rather heavy bitter and long-lasting finish. Light to medium body, dry and chalky texture, moderate carbonation. A nice one, but not that special.

Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma has light tartness and then fresh grassy hoppyness. Light to medium-bodied. Grassy hoppyness, light grainy notes, light tartness, grapefruit. Lingering grassy bitterness. Refreshing.
