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, we’ve 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 we’ll leave it to you to discover the individual aromas and tastes, but you’ll 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.

Parmenion777 (364) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2017
Bottle - Pours hazy yellow colour with a small frothy white head. The aroma is citrus fruits, grass and light straw. Moderately sweet and dry, with light malt, grass, and lemony citrus flavours and a citrusy bitterness in the finish.

Davros IX (534) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2017 Keg at the Salisbury Arms in Winchmore Hill. A cloudy pint and a lovely spiky and hoppy flavour to the beer. It really tickled the taste buds after the dire previous pint and put a smile back on our faces. So much so that we were persuaded to take part in the pub quiz. We came last, but won a bottle of red wine for the best team name. We used my 9 year old daughter's gaming name, "Cat Poop Ninja" and she is ecstatic that we won. We had another pint later in the evening and we agreed that it was the best of the night.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - NOV 27, 2017
Can from Marks & Spencer, Merthyr Tydfil. Was not as intense/weird as I was expecting from this company, but that is not to say that this is not a great IPA. Very fruity with just the right levels of bitterness. Orange, lemony tones and fluffy, lively mannerisms. Cracking!

hrabren (1667) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2017 0.33 l bottle, brought by Višnja666 and Goran Pilot. Thanks! Clear greenish, small white head. Fresh grassy hops. Herbs. Very light bitter. Watery. Not impressive.

Can. Opaque blond with a frothy white head. Dry aroma, sawdust and some toast, a little bit of yeast and citrus. Bitter, slightly soapy, pink grapefruit in the mouth. Light body, fizzy, juicy finish. Nice.
