COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned. AKA Hereford Pale Ale.
HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. Itís smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish.
Locally grown Target and Styrian Goldings hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer. With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.

Bottle from Lyde Court Hereford. A smooth Pale Ale. Faint Citrus notes. A touch buttery and could do with a touch more oomph but still enjoyable:

Cask fresh at Queens Arms, Birmingham. I prefer more hops and bitterness, but this is a well balanced, easy drinking pale ale, with local ingredients.
