Gyle 59 Tropical Thunder (3.7%)

FullSizeRender 3Brewed to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, this light Pale Ale is brewed with Mountain Pepper (Drimys Lanceolata), an Australian rainforest shrub that historically was used to treat scurvy.
It adds a very pithy dry green leafy layer to this rather tasty little beer that begins with a soft caramel wafer and runny honey malt and has a good sharp lemon and nettle hopping.
While you drink, the aroma, all apricots and orchard greenery, wafts up at you, smelling as fresh as a daisy as you head towards the crisp bitter finish.
