Pale Ale, Five Points, Hackney, London
4.4% alcohol
Brewed with malted barley, a little wheat, and Amarillo, Centennial and Citra hops. I have yet to discover if there is bottle variation in beers such as these. I first drank this beer on draught at The Bull & Last near Gospel Oak, and it was a great session ale with character and balance. This bottled version was extremely hoppy and overly bitter to my taste, to the point I couldn’t really taste the good beer under the hops. Verdict: more research needed. ?/10
