Inspired by bold American IPAs and named after the American jazz legend Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker. Full of hops with a lasting fruity flavour. Masses of hop. Tettnang and Willamette give tropical fruit, mango and floral notes with some spicy character. Cascade adds fresh pink grapefruit and Challenger and Pilgrim provide the underlying herbal hop with a touch of orange peel.

Golden with little white head. Aroma is citrus slightly mouldy peach wheat honey. Taste is bitter rotten peach with a hoppy honey finish. Slight butter in tge finish as well. Medium drinkable. Too much of everything. Not balanced at all.

funcut (733) - SIBENIK, CROATIA - AUG 13, 2017
Kupljeno u djela i popijeno u nadi da je pravi pale ale...nazalost prekiselo i bez okusa...jedino miris je ok..

pictoman (1212) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2017
Poured from 330mL bottle (labelled 2016/06/17 - 2017/11/01). Clear golden orange with minimal white head. Toffee and vegetable with mild caramel malt and subtle metallic taste. Quite below average, a bit boring.

adamnase (893) - Kronoby, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2017
33cl bottle from Citymarket, Kokkola. Pours amber coloured with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with some citrus and toffee. Flavor has toffee, cookies, wood, sweetness. Dryish. decent!

artyom (1171) - Osijek, CROATIA - JUN 28, 2017
0.33l bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma is malty with herbal, floral, citrus, earthy, spicy and fruity character. Taste is malty with nice hop notes, mostly English hops and some citrus notes. Overall it’s nice beer.

BeardedAvenger (1121) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle at Station, West Byfleet. Nothing else left to try so was left with this. Floral grassy yeasty aroma - almost lager-esque. Dark gold. Creamy but thin white head, Bubbly. Initially sweet and malty before a hoppy spiced bitterness makes a half-hearted appearance. Light bodied. Watery. Lively Carbonation. Abrupt finish. The blurb on the bottle refers to, bold American pale ales, but that is was off the mark. Bland and bland gets.

ischas (812) - - JUN 9, 2017
Bierverkostung im Limes, Bonn, 08.06.2017. Waldhaus / Greene King. Bier #08. Riecht frisch, hopfig. Schmeckt wässrig, dezent bitter, kaum Aromen.
