Moondance 4.2% A.B.V


Pale Ale

One of our original recipes brewed since 1997, a pale ale with copious amounts of American Cascade hops. Wonderfully aromatic floral nose balanced by a gentle bitterness with a hint of sweetness. No wonder this beer has won the most awards of all the beers in our range.

Available all year round.

Cask at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 29/07/16. Stronger aroma than I was expecting - healthy floral and hops. Deep gold. Thin white head. Light bodies. Sweet. A mixture of flora and some bitterness from the hops. A hint of honey. Very drinkable.

September 19, 2015. Cask at Oliver Twist.
Hazy pale amber with a small head. Aroma is malty with crisp and freshly crushed grain, bread, hints of toffee, some floral hoppy notes and hints of grass. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter. Finish is floral bitterness with some stalk notes, light malty sweetness with bread and grain. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

Supremely drinkable. Enough of a twang that it works after some more enthusiastically hopped beverages, but smooth enough for a pint.

Rose & Crown, Sandhurst, Halloween beer festival, straight from the cask: Superbly easy drinking ale. Well balanced, subtle flavours. Nothing brash or uncouth about this ale. A marvellous beer to be drinking ‘neath the cover of October skies. Or any other month. Highly recommended.

This yellow ale has a distinct citrus hoppiness, and a good bitter after taste. All in all, one of the best ales around.

Amber hue, minimal head. Crystal clear. Heather flavours combine with bitters to give a refreshing mouthfeel.

Cask by hand-pump at Pot Still, Glasgow - clear amber, thin creamy off-white head, floral, biscuit aroma, good film of lacing, biscuit, indeterminate hoppy bitterness, easy to drink and a lingering bitter finish with tangy bitterness. Good stuff.
