    Yeah it's great isn't it? It's the best tasting mid strength beer I've had. Love the open-top cans as well.

    My guess on the malt bill:

    pale ale malt (80%)
    medium or light crystal malt (5%)
    malted wheat (15%)

    Hops, not sure but I think the late hop flavour is ella?

    Is this a particular beer you are trying to clone or more a style? Brewery if the former?

    It's a particular beer. The brewer is Colonial and the beer is called Small Ale. It's a 3.5%er.

    At a tasting one of the sales people from Colonial , kindly told me the ingredients (but alas not the recipe!)
    ABV: 3.5%
    Malts: Marris Otter / Munich / Wheat / Caramunich / Crystal
    Hops: Centennial / Cascade / Columbus / Chinook / Citra
    IBU: 22

    My recipe from this is as follows:

    Still in the fermenter cold crashing, but early sample is quite tasty, even if it does not have as much pine flavour as the original.

    Afraid not. I was only really interested in the Small Ale and thought that I was pushing my luck asking for that!

    Hi Andy, I used US-05 in my recipe, am not sure what Colonial actually use though. My recipe lacked a bit of the fruity flavour compared to the original, so when I redo, I will be adding some Citra at the whirlpool stage and upping the amount in the dry hop.
