This ale is described, by the brewery, as: Pure gold.
They say it is like marmalade, made from Seville oranges and grapefruit, the aroma mimics the sweet start but gives into the hops which deliver a dry lingering bitter finish.
To the rest of us, mere mortal (and normal) people, it is a premium pale ale brewed using lager malts with a top fermenting ale yeast.
A variety of hops from Europe and America combine to provide a floral taste.
