COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle & Keg: Filtered
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.

Word of advice to Greene king. Actually try an American ipa before trying to brew one. Sweeter and fruitier than the standard uk ipa, but by no means does it even come close to a us ipa. Don’t be fooled.

artyom (1109) - 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.

2.6
BeardedAvenger (746) - 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.

Color dorado claro transparente. Aroma a caramelo y malta. Sabor ligeramente dulce al principio para dar paso al amargor del lúpulo y toques frutales al final.

nephirem (507) - CROATIA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear orange pour with slight reddish hue. One finger white head, quickly diminishing. Nose is malty, slight hoppy. Touch of caramel. Thin body with slightly above average carbonation, a bit prickly. Regular texture, a bit on the watery side. Moderately bitter taste. Light. Aroma of malts and hops, slight caramel, a bit grassy. Refreshing citrus presence. Herbal with subtle honey-like notes. Dry mouthfeel and finish. Overall, not bad. Quite decent for the low ABV. Nothing extraordinary, but a good thirst quencher.
