Narrow Neck is one of the new additions to the Gage Roads range that appeared towards the end of 2014 and our pick of the brewery's core range. The tag "Session Ale" is likely to make the one-two punch of piney and marmaladey US hops that hits you straight up come as quite the surprise. Similar hop flavours, leaning more towards the pine, follow alongside some welcome caramel malts.
"So where's the session side of things?" you might ask. It comes in two ways: for a start, there's the sub-four percent ABV; what's more, while the aromas and flavours deliver upfront, they soon skedaddle off from whence they came, leaving a rather clean and unencumbered palate behind.
