You are drinking... #3
We think it is a 5.2% ABV American Pale Ale, but you can call it what you want.
One of 897 ish pints available from this particular batch (which is a vast improvement from previous attempts and — at the risk of bragging — most beer is now getting in the keg rather than ending up all over the floor). Every brew is different.
It's made of
Still drawn from our own bloody deep well under our feet tapping into a lovely, chalk hills fed, aquifer. Think hundreds of years of natural filtration.
We like the history of malting in our area and feel a loyalty to traditional quality English malts — this time Pale Ale and Dark Crystals.
Summit and Cascade from the USA and Dana from Slovenia. Hops are the daddy of Super Alpha acid with a composition around 17% but we really like it for its citrus contribution. You may get notes of grapefruit, tangerine or orange particularly if you have matched this beer with a fruit salad — but we would ask why.
American pale ale yeast — still struggling to get excited by this particularly after discovering it tastes horrid unless it is in a decent pint of beer, don’t ask.
We have brewed something similar to this but have decided to give it some umph. Hell — at 5.2% the Treasury can get its paws on some more tax someones got to pay for all the stuff the fine country needs.
Well, you can see for yourself.
Likewise; just use your nose.
Up to you. Our tastebuds and preferences are all different anyway. It's meant to be a full flavoured American Pale ale with a well-balanced flavour and clean after bitterness.
If you don't like it don't waste good time/energy/ingredients — maybe just give it to someone who will appreciate it.
No need for compliments or criticism — we didn't record how we made it so we can't change anything anyway. Just remember to enjoy, socialise, and feel good — it's what the beer is there for!
