HB Clark - Merrie City - Atlantic Hop

WP_20150325_004What they say: American hops are currently extremely sought after to satisfy the growing demands from UK brewers and drinkers.We have managed to secure stocks of the popular Amarillo hop from across the water and have mixed it with the ever-reliable British Bramling Cross hop to form this fantastic new session craft cask ale.The pale amber craft ale has a fresh, citrus aroma and a tropical, fruity taste, whilst the unique blend of hops leave a bitter-sweet aftertaste on the tongue.

Procured whilst staying on the North Yorkshire Coast was this offering from West Yorkshire brewery H.B. Clark. In good nick but regulars will know from the above description that it’s not my thing. A good summer beer though. 4.0% A.B.V.
