Colour: Pale Straw
Type: Modern Bitter/Pale Ale
This style has its roots in the pale ale revolution of the 19C. The term bitter though, did not emerge until the early 20C, possibly to distinguish it from the equally popular mild.
This is a scintillating pale ale! The malt base is simple with Maris Otter and Lager malts. The hops steal the show with German, American, Czech, Slovenian and English varieties providing lemon fresh citrus qualities.
Light fresh and easy, drink on its own or to counter heavy or spicy foods.
5 litre minicasks. Magus is clear and ready-to-drink.
These beers are natural, having a yeast sediment which continues to develop the character of the beer. Natural processes and no filtration ensure that all the flavour is left in. All bottles are suitable for vegans. Choose 12 bottles of a single beer or mix your own case (5% off 2 or more cases).
Cask-conditioned has a sediment and needs to settle. mainly for the pub but good for parties.
