Low Rider is a session ale that straddles the line between English Mild and Bitter, but with an American twist. North American 2-row Pale Ale, Belgian Biscuit, and rich caramel malts from France were used for the grist, lending a nice bready malt backbone that perfectly balances a restrained herbal hop character. A small kettle addition of Dark BelgianCandi Syrup added a dash of color and subtle notes of burnt raison, while serving to help dry the beer out avoiding cloying sweetness. Instead of traditional English hop varieties, Warrior hops were used for their clean bitterness, and Vanguard was added as a flavor and dry-hop addition (post fermentation), lending a nuanced earthy spiciness. It was then fermented with our house yeast strain. To top it off, this is beer will be poured from our Nitro line, giving it a creamy smooth mouth feel mimicking the traditional cask ales of England. This pale copper brew, with its everlasting head may be low inabv but it still packsmadd flava in true Dogfish style. Cheers!
