Back in the summer of 2012/13, Bright decided they should add a light beer to their offering. Then brewer Jon Seltin came up with Pilot Light, a beer inspired by low ABV English IPAs. It's a beer that's regularly returned since and generally includes slight recipe tweaks while remaining a beer designed to help showcase hops within a low ABV.
The Pilot of today features Motueka and Sultana which provide distinctive tropically fruity aromas and flavours. It has a pleasingly full body for such a light ale and a hint of resinous bitterness drying things out, all making for a satisfying session ale.
