COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brewers Reserve Alpha Pale Ale is very much in line with the beers from America’s North West – assertive bitterness together with a distinctive fruit and citrus aroma - except we’ve put a Matilda Bay spin on it. It has a big hop nose with citrus notes derived from the use of Cascade hops imported from North America. 35 IBU.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and lovely hoppy which gives it notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of grapefruit, and medium notes of grass and caramel, as well as light notes of alfa acids, leading to a good bitter finish.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle, at London gathering, November 2005. Thanks to kook for bringing this one. A pretty fair rendition of an APA. Orangey copper colour. Reasonable ration of resinous hops in aroma and flavour. Light, refreshing and maybe a bit soft. Could do with a touch more bitterness. Not quite up to the standard of Little Creatures but a definite move in the right direction.
