A beautiful balance of malt and hops. First come the sweet toffee notes from the smooth malt base of pale ale, crystal malts and roasted barley. The fruit bitterness is provided by the spicy, citrus New Zealand hops as well as American Amarillo which provides floral and distinctly orange aroma and flavour. We reckon this is a easy drinking beer is perfect to sink a few of while still discovering new nuances. Well matched to a sunny afternoon.
