Lawnmower beers, session ales, summer smashers, XPAs ... call them what you like, but such beers are brewed for one purpose above all: to quench thirst. While you'd be advised to seek the advice of an accredited medical professional before attempting to cure your sunstroke with beer, there's no doubt a nice, tropical beer at the end of a tough, hot day makes starting a chore that much easier. And it's here that Prancing Pony’s XPA has come to play.
A bright yellow straw colour invites the hot and bothered drinker, supporting a lingering, fluffy white head. It's an XPA that's all about summery vibes, with sweet tropical aromas bursting from the glass. Mango is the dominant fruit here alongside passionfruit and hints of pine. The body is on the lighter side, all the easier to slide down after you finish your summer chores. Passionfruit hits your taste buds first with a biscuity, bready malt profile supporting the juicy fruit and a bitterness that's very soft and easy, allowing a touch of sweetness to stick around.
