Punks Do It Bitter

Punks Do It Bitter is a golden, slightly coated beer
with a creamy head and a good retention.

It releases inebriating citrusy aromas with a pronounced dominance of grapefruit, giving an immediate olfactory idea of how refreshing this beer can be, an idea which is then confirmed by its taste.
It has a light body and flows easily, but not hurriedly, towards a dry finish with a delicate and persistent bitterness.

Indie Ale

The Indie Ale is characterised by a clear amber colour and a very compact creamy head. It displays a surprising balance between the abundant hoppiness and the use of malts.

The citrusy notes, typical of the hops used, live side by side with the sweeter undertones of the malts and with the caramel sensations which slowly mix with fruity, tropical and citrusy taste given by the abundant hoppiness.
