English Pale Ale with American aroma hops.
Bluebird XB combines two of the great themes of ale brewing to produce something distinctive and new. The fine tradition of English Pale Ale is about quaffing, refreshment and complexity of flavour without alcoholic strength

Then throw in a new wave of American hop variety Mount Hood with robust citrus aromas.
... Not too much mind or we might have an American Pale Ale on our hands?

Let uklar dybgylden med et kortvarigt hvidt skum. Duft af malt og blomster med mandarin i en flot balance. Smagen er fyldig med fint balanceret sødme og en markant men velafstemt bitterhed, der holder længe.
