Whitepark Brewery Kellyhopter (4.8%)

This is another beer form my last beer swap that I probably wouldn’t have tried if I’d been confronted with it in a shop.
I can be silly at times.
Kellyhopter, ridiculous name aside, is a rather good light ale with plenty of hops and a gentleness that belies its ABV.
It pours a decent gold and smells light and floral with a squeeze of lemon on the side.
The malting is soft honey coated shortcake biscuit, sweet and satisfying and the hops are spiky thistle stabs of hedgerow pithiness with some good crisp and clean citrus cutting through the gently spicy wood that turns peachy and sweet as you reach the end.
This is really rather good.
