THIS BEER IS

Out of order and stability comes the rush of the pack. Berry and caramel riding alongside marmalade and chocolate. Spice and toast jostle with lychee and biscuit.

The needle flicks to all points of the compass. It drives you towards the horizon, towards the vanishing point. And it keeps going…

BREWER'S TIP

Brewers Tip Icon

Go easy on the crystal and dark crystal malt. Too much will skew the flavour profile away from lychees and citrus towards dried fruit.
