Our Reflection series continues, and with this beer, we gaze into the rippling waters of one of our/the industry's biggest influences. That beer is, of course, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. One of the first American beers to be widely available in the UK market, and one that started the journey for huge swathes of breweries in the UK & US (including us). It’s a beer that’s never faded and that we continue to enjoy.
This is our take on that beer and with it, we hope we can pay it some of the respect it’s due. We built a base of sweet grainy malts before hitting it with the classic that is Cascade on both the hot side and cold side. The result is big hits of grapefruit & pine, a firm bitterness and a light biscuity malt character. For us… it’s a dream.
