This has the most amazing tropical fruit smell oozing out of the bottle on opening - I can smell pineapple and mango as the bright sunshine yellow ale transports me to sunnier climes. There is a lot of fizz in this pale ale, as almost champagne-like bubbles rush to the surface, and consequently it has a massive head.
On to the taste! After I got through the head it has an almost overbearing flavour of grapefruit citrus and I didn't like it at first. It has a very bitter strong grapefruit taste that is a little too harsh for me. It fels almost as if I had a whole grapefruit in my mouth; pith, skin and all. I definitely got used to the taste and I'm never one to write off a beer but Ale not be seeing this one again.
Brewed by Brighton Bier, unsurprisingly in Brighton
