Pigs Fly - Pale Ale Beer


As the name would suggest, Pigs Fly Pale Ale is, well, um, a pale ale. But not just any pale ale. Rather a micro fermented pale ale made using only the finest pure pale and crystal malt, giving this brew its brilliant golden-copper color. Looks count, but what about that fantastic taste? Well, it’s all down to the hops. We use two types of hops in our pale ale; Cascade hops which give it that fruity, floral taste at the front of your palate, while the Chinook hops bring it all home with a unique bitterness at the back.
And let’s not forget the hero of the story, our humble top fermenting ale yeast. This very clever yeast allows for a warmer fermentation, which allows for the formation of esters, which allows you enjoy the distinct fruity citrus aromas in this brew. Very clever indeed. So, what are you waiting for?

Appearance - A copper/golden colour with good carbonation and creamy white head with good retention.
