Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Dead Pony Club and Dead Pony

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That's why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

330 ml bottle, Tesco's, Bristol - Pours clear amber with a medium white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - Citrus to the fore - grapefruit/orange. Taste - Citrus hoppy front - grapefruit, malty overtones, light resin, crisp bitter finish. Not a heavy hitter but nothing wrong here. Solid session APA.

Can pour into tulip.

For a low ABV (3.8%) pale ale this packs a shit load of flavour. Tropical fruit is plentiful but it's the depth of the malt character that makes this beer so good. Incredibly well balanced and drinkable. I've been putting this one off as I prefer my beers on the heavy side but I'm very pleasantly surprised. A truly sessionable pale ale to rival Sierra Nevada in terms of availability in the U.K. Cheers!

Poured from the can to a nonic glass.

A: The body is orange with coppery hues. The head is minimal as it has almost no retention. There's some lacing. In general, I was expecting a bit more retention here.
S: The smell is very loose as you can only feel malts and a really minimal profile of citrus. Strong pine and citrus profiles is what to expect here.
T: The taste shows some improvement on the aroma by concealing some earthy tones like pine but it's way to fainted to provide a damn good taste profile.
M: Density is rather low. Carbonation is a bit harsh. And bitterness is relatively good.
O: I find this beer good for a beach purpose, for example. When you want to have a good option to take with you to sip and not overthink things. Sinceramente the taste profile is very simple and the density is low, this would be a good choice to soak up the sun.
