London-based Five Points Brewing Company has released its 2020 summer seasonal beer, Micro Pale

Clocking in at just 2.8% abv, Micro Pale comes as a response to the growing demand for lower-abv drinks which the UK has been experiencing during lockdown.

'Packed full of flavour but only 2.8% in strength, [Micro Pale] is a great option for those warm summer evenings after a long day working from home,' said Ed Mason, co-founder and managing director of Five Points.

'It’s also our first new beer launched under lockdown. We had been planning Micro Pale as a draught-only release initially, but when the lockdown began we had to pivot rapidly and get the beer into bottles so our customers would still get a chance to enjoy it from home.'

The beer, hopped with Cascade and Vic Secret, is currently available at Five Points' The Pembury Tavern, which recently reopened for takeaways, and through the brewery's webstore.

2.8% abv, £28/24x330ml can, shop.fivepointsbrewing.co.uk
