28 Pale Ale, 70’s style – tight flares and glitter balls

American in style, it’s fresh and fruity with a nice citrus tang, reminiscent of grapefruit rind. The “70’s style” comes through too with undertones of tight flares and glitter balls. There’s that all American strong hop finish too, very satisfying. I had mine with barbecued chicken and red-hot chilli sauce.
