With no fruit additions on the table and without the firm canvas that higher ABV gives, Northern Monk set about creating a 3.0% ABV session beer with a flavour, intensity and mouthfeel of a drink of much higher strength. Starting with the base, they made sure their water was super soft and well balanced. Enough Sulphates to lift the hops, enough Chloride to smooth out the mouthfeel. For the malt they trialled a new Super Pale variety, making this by far the palest beer they have ever brewed, and made up 1/4 of the grist with Oats for the creamy mouthfeel they contribute. They then layered in as much hop flavour across 3 dry-hop additions, going with west coast favourites Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic for an intense Pine, Grassy and Citrus character, backed up by hints of Orange and Mango from a bonus Citra addition.
