Mercenary American Pale Ale
BRIGHT, INVIGORATING, ACCESSIBLE AND HOPPY
Beer Style: American Pale Ale Fresh Wort Kit
Description: Sophisticated, yet simple. That’s our Mercenary. All smiles and flashes of gold, with just a little sweetness before the bitter finish. Strong hits of citrus and pine keep things fresh, bright and invigorating like an afternoon on a California gold course – but infinitely more accessible.
