650ml bottle poured in a pint glass.

Clear, copper-orange-amber colour. Head is off-white and 1/2 inch at the pour, but reduces to a thin cap with big frothy bubbles. Some lacing down the sides.

Aroma is well balanced. Mostly hops, but with a nice malt background.

The hoppy taste increases from start to finish, leaving a nice mild bitter hop aftertaste. Just a touch of malt sweetness hangs around in the background at the start until the carbonation hits the tongue. There is just enough hop flavour to make it distinct, but not so much that it becomes overly bitter.

Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. The hop finish leaves a crisp bite feeling in the mouth.

This is a great pale ale. Probably one of the best, if not THE best I've had to date. Made with Maris Otter Malt and Kent Golding Hops. There's just something about this that keeps calling me back for more. The low alcohol content makes this a great session beer. Another winner from Bushwakker, I just wish it was one of their year round offerings.
