COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

We have a passion for flavour and a lust for hops this frisky, fragrant pale ale is the result. Whilst consistency is (rightly) the benchmark of most beers, weve gone Wild with Fresh and thrown away the rulebook. Every six months we source some of the most exciting hops from both the northern and southern hemispheres, which means two hop harvests and two excitingly different hop profiles.
Given the unpredictability of each harvest well leave it to you to discover the individual aromas and tastes, but youll be guaranteed a punchy hop character alongside an appetising bitterness and a crisp dry finish that will send you back for more. This is a beer we like to drink all through the year. We think you will too.
The first brew of Fresh has copious amounts of New Zealand hops in it. We particularly love the sherbet lemon aromas in the Southern Cross.

stravale (2971) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness [120213]
Amber, slight head, frothy white head that dissipates to thin coasting, touch of lacing
Aroma soft grassy hops, herbal notes, dab of nettle, very slight celery hint
Taste soft grassy hops, cut plant stems, slight herbal, light pale malt background, some citrus in there but the fairly spicy plant stem taste is masking it, getting a touch more celery-like flavour - unusual - tbh it doesnt taste that great
Palate medium carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour, some more zest comes through with a moderate bitter bit spicy linger
Overall - Came across as quite herbal to me and less of those big citrus hops, also some plant stem in there, bit unusual.... ive had far better beers with NZ hops.....getting underwhemled with these beers....liking it less with the drinking....intially 3.3 down to 2.9
