Brewing great beer is rarely a case of happy accidents. Like any culinary discipline the more you do something, the better. This new series of beers is a result of our relentless quest for balance.
Repetition can itself be a form of change, each release will be a different style but all with the same premise; balanced and low strength beer thats highly drinkable. The first release is what we consider a classic session ale. Its 4% ABV is held up with a biscuity malt base, a high mash temperature ensures enough dextrine's are left behind to hold the beer together. An english yeast adds a subtle complexity to the Vienna and crystal malts and a very delicate dose of Mosaic and Citra lend a light citrusy finish. Its a quenching and balanced ale who’s complexity lies in the space created by subtlety.
Have two, or three and enjoy the benefits of still being able to work your phone!
A nationwide release will be underway on the 4th of August so head down to your local craft beer corner and grab a glass
