Beer: Clear Heart
Description: Characterised by it’s biscuity malts and easy drinking style, this was the second ever beer we brewed and still tastes as amazing as the very first time it passed our lips.

Finn states, “When I set out to make this beer, I was going for something with a clear taste and a full flavor. Instead I got a pretty decent buzz. We had a great time creating this beer and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Enjoy!”
