Thornbridge Kipling South Pacific Style Pale Ale

The Thronbridge Brewery - Riverside Brewery is at Buxton Road, Bakewell, UK.

This 5.2% ABV beer pours a glowing yellow golden, slightly cloudy, with a small white head that leaves a nearly clear glass.  The aroma is much like a lager, grain and some straw/grain/barn/ "funk."  There is a bit of light fruit in the aroma as well and some light leather.  The taste is a wave of lager with the funk, followed immediately by a refreshing fruitiness with zesty citrus and tropical notes, with another quick wave of dry bitterness that finishes the flavor.  While not visibly highly carbonated the beer has a biting, carbonated mouthfeel that finishes dry.  This is a very flavorful and refreshing beer.
