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.

Did you happen to get any more of those pics for their other beers?

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.

Thanks Jason,

I brewed a batch a couple weeks ago (based on your recipe). It’s close, very close, but I agree, just needs a bit more fruit in it. Am brewing again this weekend because the first batch didn’t last two weeks!
