Greene King apprentices launch their newly created pale ale
Brewing apprentices at Greene King have crafted their first beer which launches nationally this month,
The unfiltered pale ale, known as Icebreaker, is the first to be crafted by brewing apprentices and joins the core Greene King beer portfolio.
Under tutelage of Master Brewer Ross O'Hara the apprentices were given the freedom to develop the beer of their choice.
Icebreaker is described as a pale ale bursting with fruity hop flavours which contains waves of guava and passion fruit 'which crash with big citrus fruit flavours'.
Mr O'Hara said: "When our apprentices first proposed the idea of developing an unfiltered pale ale we were totally up for it and we have chosen a hop combination which is enhanced when in an unfiltered form.
"It is bold in flavour and also incredibly drinkable."
Icebreaker is available in keg across free trade and national pub retailers including selected Greene King pubs.
