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.

DruncanVeasey (8663) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2018
Tin from Gloucester Services, 19/08/17. Diaphanous blonde with a slim white head. Slightly sharp kumquat and lime citrus with pale nut and pollen nose. Moderate condition approaching flat; wet biscuit and pale nut base, curry leaf and lemon zest hops, medium bitterness with slightly soapy and bilious elements to follow. Doesn't sing with freshness. Averagely good. Not worth a revisit.

2018-03-01. Hazy orange body, nice foamy beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma of tangerine and lemon. Flavour is pleasantly citrusy up front, moderate bitterness. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Better than expected after it gushed out of the. 7/3-4/7/3/15 Can at The Bucket List, Swansea.

30/X/17 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2017-1840) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear yellow beer, small creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, oxidized. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, soapy, fruity touch, some citrus, pretty watery, malty. Aftertaste: bit fruity, some grapefruit, hoppy touch, bit oxidized. Probably too old, but: 1. no date to be found on the bottle or the cap, 2. ordered through a webshop, so always risky...

330ml can from the shop, shared with friends. Pours slightly cloudy with a long-lasting thin frothy head, plenty of lacing, Pale lemon yellow in colour. Aromas of fresh lemon grass and lime. Fizzy at first in the mouth releasing fresh lemon and lime flavours, slightly herbal with a dry but not unpleasant soapiness. a very dry finish but not excessively bitter, no apparent sweetness. Overall, light and refreshing, with unusual lemon and lime flavours. The perfect summer antidote to lager.

Marko (6421) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2018
Bottled, thanks Višnja! Misty yellow body, white head. Slightly funky aroma, light grapefruit. Creamy taste, clean light herbal notes and not that much else. Okay, but not much more than that in this shape, hope to rerate it at some point.

Guess it wasn't... *puts on sunglasses*... fresh. *YEEEEEAAAHHH!!! :guitar:*

Can. Hazy yellow colour with huge head off. Aroma of lemons, grassy, limes. Taste of lemons, grassy, malts. Hoppy finish

tmdaines (207) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2018
This was all kinds of great. Super hoppy, very clean, crisp flavours. Really juicy. Reminds me of IPAs at far higher price points and ABVs. Fantastic.
