500ml clear glass bottle. 4.2% ABV. Poured a clear pale amber with light carbonation & frothy white head. Nice herbal citrus nose.A well balanced pale ale with expected hop bitterness a downbeat version of their Old Empire IPA. Rounded mouthfeel with long biotter finish.
Pale ale is my favourite style and this is a nice example
