I feel like we’ve moved from lagers to ales recently, and here we’ve got another one. The flavours are getting deeper, too, and here we have one with some real bite. I have to say, this is a good example of an ale with real interest – some complex hoppy flavours which apparently come from a number of different hops. They call it a ‘modern’ pale ale, and it does seem to be – it can hold its own against the more recent craft ales. A real good specimen.

8/10 – possibly would earn an extra half point if I were doing half points!
