Made by Greene King Brewery
Time well spent.
Aroma: Tropical fruits, floral, grapefruit citrus
Taste: Tropical & Citrus fruits, spicy hop, crisp bitter linger
Malt: Pale Malt, Carapils, Amber
Hops: Simcoe, Citra, Centennial
Perfect with: Fish dishes with a creamy sauce will allow Yardbird to cleanse the palate and tingle your taste buds ready for the next yummy mouthful. Sweet and sour dishes pick up the fruitiness of the beer which would also work well with a tasty burger with fruity relish.
Additional Notes: Masses of hops are used in this fruity pale ale. Simcoe in the copper for robust bitterness and underlying resin hop. Citra and Centennial are added for Citrus and tropical fruit flavour and Simcoe is added twice more to give more citrus, pine resin and passion fruit. Even more Citra is added in the fermenter to increase the citrus and fruity fragrance. A good body and sweetness comes from the mix of three malts and this is balanced by a bold dry bitter linger.
