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.

Cask conditioned handpump Lyric Soho London 03/05/13. A hazy blonde coloured beer with a bright white head. Another lovely hoppy beer. Great pale malt balance. Less citrussy tropical than the Tiny Rebel I had before this and the extra lick of alcohol is noticeable. Very tasty and drinkable again. Good stuff.

teddybeer (2930) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 23, 2015
Orangish color with a whiet head with medium retention. Aroma has notes of orange, some grapefruit and resin hops. Flavor has a decent bitterness, fruity notes dominated by orange peel notes. Good bitterness in the final with good duration.

Bottle from flavourly, tropical and pine aromas, pours a hazy copper colour with a thin white head. A nice crisp refreshing beer with a satisfying bitterness.

Acid303 (568) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - NOV 12, 2015
33cl can, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with medium white head. Very nice lacing. Both aroma and taste are citrus, mango and pine...also hints of herbs after a few minutes. Well balanced: it is hoppy but still displays a soft malt character. Medium body, good carbonation. So refreshing, perfect in sunny days, and pretty tasty.

jookos (3900) - FINLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle. Copper orange, well fizzy, appears bottle conditioned. Orange,zest, lemony citrus, foresty green herby, light caramels on nose. Med bodied, bitter, bit dry, rawish finish. Pretty ok hoppy flavour, a bit unrefined, but,not really messy either. A powerful hoppy pa.
