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.

I like a lot this beer for the taste of Iron. It’s not to bitter, and it’s well balanced.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2017 Real Ale in a Holiday Inn (Bromsgrove). This one is as bright as a summers Day colour of a lager, not too hoppy but could drink it all day.

Pint on cask at the Three Horseshoes, Little Cowarne, Herefordshire (2017-10-04). A very traditional English beer - nothing too pronounced in flavour or aroma, but a deeply satisfying session beer. Delicious after a hard day making cider!

a favourite of mine that i haven't tried for a while. crisp yet smooth, lemon citrus aftertaste. served ice cold in a bottle, drank this way, although have had many times in the past on draught. fantastic beer if you ever get the chance to try it.

Cask at the GBBF 2017. Day 5. 12/08/2017. A very pale yellow coloured pour with a lasting halo of white head. Aroma is delicate lemon citrus, ginger, apricot. Flavour is composed of light grains, little hay, dried fruits, lemon and cinnamon. Palate is light grains, little lemon grass. Decent.

The_Osprey (9721) - 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)

Parmenion777 (381) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Pint at the Ship & Castle, Aberystwyth - pours a clear pale yellow straw colour with a very small fine white head. A light lemon citrus aroma, a hint of straw and light malt. A rich buttery taste, light sweet biscuit and light bitterness in the finish.

Fra fat på Wellington, Birmingham 21 Sep 16. Lys gyldengul. Filmskum. Lett parfymearoma. Smaken lett aprikos & parfyme. Lite variasjon.

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

Rune (13760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2016
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).
