Hickey The Rake tasting notes
Wylam Hickey The Rake is an American Pale Ale. Pretty refreshing and drinkable, it has citrusy aromas with some flowers, and taste is bitter with a lemon touch and some fruits. Perfect beer for a summer drink!
American Pale Ale (APA) is a refreshing and hoppy, ale, with enough supporting malts to guarantee drinkability. ABV ranges between 4.5 and 6,2 ABV, and bitterness goes from 30 to 50 IBUs. Hops can range from traditional to modern American hops. Appearance is pale to light amber, and flavours and aromas are hoppy with floral and fruity notes. It is lighter and cleaner than English Pale Ales, and more accesible that modern day American IPA's.
