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.

Cask conditioned handpump Lyric Soho London 03/05/13. A hazy blonde coloured beer with a bright white head. Another lovely hoppy beer. Great pale malt balance. Less citrussy tropical than the Tiny Rebel I had before this and the extra lick of alcohol is noticeable. Very tasty and drinkable again. Good stuff.
