The Brewing Crew – San Diego Pale Ale 4.5%
A light amber coloured ale with rich fruit and grapefruit aromas, with hints of tropical fruit. It has a smooth, initially malt taste, followed by grapefruit bitterness from the American hops, with a hint of biscuit.
Whilst grapefruit can be a dominant flavour from American hops, it is not excessive in this ale and it has subtle fruit notes.
This is a special brew by The Brewing Crew of Balast Point in California brewed at the Hook Norton Brewery for the Wetherspoon chain.
