Redchurch Brewery  by Great Eastern India Pale Ale

Gentle citrus notes and good biscuit malt balance. Fruity esters comes through. Easy drinking for its ABV.

Quite sweet, with a bready malt background, but there are lemon and resinous hop notes, too. Decent summer thirst quencher.

Have tried this on draught and in can now, and both are very good, with the draught slightly zingier on the front. Lovely use of US hops
