COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned. AKA Hereford Pale Ale.
HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. It’s smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish.
Locally grown Target and Styrian Goldings hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer. With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.

The_Osprey (8442) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Cask handpull at The Kings Arms Abergavenny with mum and Teresa. As Wye Valley HPA. Paired with Rarebit and posh fish and chips. Very pale yellow, clear, few odd bubbles, scummy off white head. Aroma is airy, biscuity, light lemongrass. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is lemongrass, mixed citrus, lemon dominant with some grapefruit. Refreshing lemongrass and soft cracker malts with a slight passionfruit finish. Would drink again. (5-4-6-4-14=3.3)

A nice light coloured ale with a slightly grassy, hoppy flavour and smooth texture . Perfect for a lazy Sunday in the pub.

Cask ale at Wellington, shared with Finn. Low, bubbly head over a bright golden body. Modest malt-fruity nose. Mixed taste of grainy malts, peaches and lemon. Leafy bitter end. Easy going (Birmingham 21.09.2016).
