COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Believe it or not, we had never brewed a pale ale when we started. But once our experimental Alpha Series was launched around 6 months in, we went about constructing the Pale of our dreams. We tweaked malts and hops continuously and eventually came to release a brew known as Gamma Ray. This name came from our Creative Director Nick Dwyer, Who at that time was working on the floor at Duke’s Brew and Que. Nick brought illustrations in every week. It was undeniable, the guy was a force and his imagery resonated deep. We all loved spacemen and lasers – again, simple. So we named the experimental brew Gamma Ray and Nick drew the design - drawing heavily from “mars attacks” and warren ellis graphic novels. Our baby was born. From its release Gamma was perfection for us and joined the Beaver core range. The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!

Very Nice Brew. Not as heavy as expected... obiously for the name. Aroma of grass, herbs and citrus hops. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Taste is medium bitter with a medium body, average carbonation and bitter finish. It’s a very nice APA, perfect for a session.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Malts : Best Pale, Caragold, Caramalt Yeast Houblons : Columbus, Bravo, Amarillo, Citra, Calypso, Mosaic Apa avec belle mousse, bien parfumée/houblonnée, peu amère, légère. Très "buvable" (au sens qu'elle passe vraiment bien), elle est descendue bien vite ce qui est un signe qui ne trompe pas! Fort bonne!

Golden blond colour with lacy head. Aroma and flavour have some light citrusy hops. This is a classic session beer to be consumed in big quantities.

BeardedAvenger (1280) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Can at Fego, Cobham. Served in a frozen glass which hinders things... Floral tropical fruit aroma. Medium amber. Thick fluffy white head. Way too cold. Medium bitter. Citrus bite. Crisp.Ligjt bodied. Slick. Fizzy carb. Abrupt slightly astringent finish. Decent enough but done a disservice by the frozen glass - it's not horrible pale lager.

Backlog. Punchy, balanced, hop forward and fresh. Pretty much sets the standard for an APA for me. Shouldn't affect opinion but the artwork is immense too.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 A lovely hoppy beer. Just how hoppy pale beers should be. Very fruity and grasy.

Very easy pale to drink. Very stylish can which is modern with a very unique graphic design surrounding the can. Easy to drink in quantities and a very fresh beer.
