A damp, grey day in Huddersfield was brightened up considerably by this weeks beer choice. I happened across Wild Beer Pogo in the Grove yesterday. I have come across it before but this time it really hit the spot. Although it is available on keg and in cans, this was a cask sample.
It is a 4.1% light beer, that does not skimp on its hop character, that comes from the use of Southern Hemisphere hops but it is its fruit character that makes it special. It is full of orange, guava and passion fruit flavours that brings a taste of summer to a grey autumn day.
If you do make it to the Grove, Wild 'Millionaire' - many people's favourite dark beer (but not mine !) is also available.
