This pilsner starts spicy, floral with sweet Pilsen malt in the front, gently tannic in the middle and then dry smooth and refreshingly bitter towards the end. The hops are all New Zealand, lending a hint of lime.
Think of Vermont as a beer style. This Double IPA uses the Vermont (Conan) yeast, U.K. malts and three American hop varieties, massively. Tons of light fruits, apple and peach drops, a bit zesty in the finish. ABV 7.6%
Don’t IPA me I’ll IPA you! This is a sour, a Belgian and a bit Yank, and a little dank. Lorries full of hops in this one, Citra and Simcoe, pucker up mate. ABV 6.2%
What makes this beer Jammy is the all English malt bill, Maris Otter for the base and a dash of Carastan for toastyness. Add an abundance of Centennial hops for a citrusy edge and we’re there. At 4.6% ABV you might just find yourself under the affluence on incahol.
Word has it, Porter is the original ale. The recipe is an agglomeration of historical London grist bills with English brown malt for a burnt cookie chocolate note, with the English ale yeast yielding a stone fruit, figgy flavor. Smooth, rich, but sessionable finish. Recommended for general family use where a Pale Ale is not required. ABV 5%
This sexy little number (not Her Majesty) stands up there with the best of the English Bitters. Crisp and creamy. Simple, elegant. Hay, a bit of honeyed biscuits, Ladyfingers clean, dry with a mouth-filling stone fruit note. Not exceedingly bitter but loads of flavor.
About six quid, I think. A blend of rye, lots of rye, US and Flemish pale malts with a hefty addition of New Zealand late hopping (herbal, fruity white grape skin notes) make this one wicked neat beer. At 7.5% this is a cracking pint for quaffing and then a walkabout.
This crimson colored scotch ale has a dark caramel note only possible with a traditional Scottish 4-hour boil. A moderate hop schedule reveals a complex flavor profile reminiscent of dark fruit and toast. Succulent finish. ABV 6.3%
