COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

Ungstrup (35015) - Citizen of the universe, - MAY 22, 2013
Draft. A hazy golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, fruits, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of peaches, citrus fruits, malt, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

CloakedDagger (2049) - - DEC 6, 2016
Can 33 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Strange, flawed aroma, salty and mousy - no hop freshness (BB 180117). Light body, chalky, very bitter, but again this salty, cheesy edge to it. Very unpleasant and certainly not what youd expect from Magic Rock! 061216

MelvinKalksma (1107) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The appearance is great and definitely the best aspect of this beer. The great flavour at the start gets to the finish too sudden. Good beer overall, that could have been so much better.

330ml can. Right up there with some of the best pale ales that Iv tried. Will need to re-rate this as it was a while ago and cant remember exactly how it tasted. Just know that I loved it.
