Tinker’s flipped the switch on this crowd favourite. Our APA’s malt has been swapped out for a lighter pilsner malt. Some would say it’s a perfect evolution, less bitter, less hops but heaps of fresh flavours. Enjoy crushed lime and honey-dew melon notes. Extra pale, extra delicious.

Pairs well with your favourite spicy Mexican dish.
