COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottle, 2013 release
Using the same base 6.7% beer, a baby version of our Hardcore, we slam a mouth puckering 75 IBUs on top of a base of Marris Otter, Crystal Malt and Caramalt before throwing dizzying amounts of hops at these beers.
The Pacific North West of America is home to the brand speanking new El Dorado Hop. America is not just about cheer-leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and El Dorado is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with tropical fruits, pear, watermelon, candy floss and stone fruit. Devilishly moreish.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2014
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of orange, apricots, tropical fruit, a touch of watermelon and fresh floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with orange, apricots, caramel, crystal malt, tropical fruit and floral hops in a finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. The hop character is not quite as aggressive as many of the sister beers, but it’s quite tasty. Nice one.
