Crisp, clean tasting blonde beer with a refreshing bitterness to quench a thirst any time of year. Fully flavoured with a combination of spicy and citrus notes from generous amounts of Kent grown "Challenger" and "First Gold" hops. This beer packs a real taste punch and is very hoppy, maybe not for those that like their Ale on the milder side.
