Don’t be fooled by its name this may be an amber beer but it is packed full of hops from two parts of the globe! Pacific Jade from New Zealand, Cluster and Summit from the United States. These hops are characterised by their hard hitting spicy and pink grapefruit flavour, giving a superb aroma working beautifully with the amount of malt we’ve been able to pack into this beer. Our Specialised Dark ale yeast strain also helps to lift this beer from the ordinary accentuating both the malt complexity and the hop character.
This beer pours a fantastic amber hue with a rocky off white head, hop character oozes from the glass giving you a heady mix of spicy black currants, pine sap and grapefruit.
On the palate this beer shows its mettle effortlessly melding the juicy caramel and toffee malt characters that belie its strength with a fantastic and complex hop flavour that actually leans towards juicy pine sap balanced with a good bitterness but not over bearing.
Pours light brown, fluffy white head.
Soft rounded aroma, subtle foral and slightly spicy.
Perfect soft malt character with a rounded mouth feel, enchanced and held together with a floral hop character with pungent tones of pine resin, and subtle earthy undertones
