Bristol Beer Factory - Independence - Pale Ale


4.6% ABV


This distinctive American pale ale is full of big hop character but without the strong bitterness. Carefully selected American hops are added continuously during the boil and also during conditioning (dry hopping) to give a really fresh aromatic boost.
This beer is mainly about hops but we have given it a malt backbone to balance the beautiful tropical fruit aromas.
