This golden, pale blonde ale has a distinctive hoppy aroma derived from use of Celeia hops late in the copper. The scents are reminiscent of fields of grass freshened by a short shower on a sunny summer’s day. The taste is sharply hoppy and beautifully stimulates the underside edges of your tongue. There’s the merest hint of malt to complement the hops. The aftertaste develops the hops further with an increasing dryness and straw bitterness to finish.
