Discountinued in June 2012. Replaced in the range by American Rye which has a significantly different recipe.
A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a mash of Marris Otter, Caramalt, Rye and Wheat malts combining to give a complex peppery flavour. American and English hop varieties provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt.

stravale (2847) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle from Vino Wine, Morningside
Dark amber, quite hazy, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - citrus hops, grapefruit, soft orange, sweet fruity malts, fruity caramel, lots of sweet citrus hops, good aroma
Taste - sweet caramel malts. touch of cereal malts, citrus and peppery hops, soft grapefruit, caramel malts donít overpower the hops, good balance
Palate - soft carb, medium body, smmooth texture, soft bit zesty palate. Finish - bitter spicy hops with caramel malts background, bitter spicy linger
Overall - Really nice bottled beer - itís not made anymore now so Iíll have to try the American Rye. If itís better than this it should be really good.
