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.

330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a nice, medium sized white head. Aroma is grassy and spicy with mild malt. Flavor is sweetish malt, a bit harsh bitterness, herbal and grassy. Medium body with a sharp herbal/grassy bitter aftertaste. Somehow decent, but I have a strong suspicion that this is not a fresh bottle as the intention of this brew. Will try to re-rate if possible.

JulienHuxley (3763) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap at the BeerTemple. Clear gold pour with medium frothy white head. Aroma is weird, really a lot of weed but in a very grassy sense, not so much dank hop, really leafy, light skunk actually. Taste is bitter, light caramel backbone, hoppy. Palate is med bodied, light booze, med carbonation. Decent.

Draught @ Wildeman, Amsterdam. Orange golden, slightest hazy, pour. Modest head, medium bubbles. Full nose: grass, buttercups, hemp. Sweetish start, cinnamon brioche. Hempy hop takes over leading to nice bitter hop finish.
