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 from Bières Cultes - Rue des Halles. Hoppy nose. Taste hoppy, slightly metallic, nice citrus bursts. Punchy in the dry finish. Good one.

Aroma is high from citrus and herbs. Taste is clean and refreshing. There’s actually a pretty high citrus content in this one, almost a little too much for me, but... it’s an easy-drinking pale ale with lots of marmelade with a medium bitter finish fighting alongside all that citrus.

Canned version. Quite nice, crisp taste but not overly bitter. Nice amber with slight cloudiness and a good head. Nice aroma without being overwhelming or stand-out. Good not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy amber beer with nice medium to big foam when pouring the can into a glass. Smells citrus to flower hops perfect blend . Taste of strawberry and apple tasting hops. Nor much of an after taste one of my favourite beers from a can.
