COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We hope you enjoy this Stoke Amber. We make it the old fashioned way and never cut corners. It’s brewed using Nelson’s famous organic hops, premium malt, our own bespoke yeast an 14,000 year old Paleo Water (no artificial additives or colouring). Stoke is tank conditioned over three weeks - that’s where the hint of honey and smooth mouth feel come from. Next time you’re in Nelson, come and meet the team here at our family brewery!

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber orange with foamy thick off white head and decent lacing. Very sickly sweet caramel and burnt toffee malt aroma - biscuit, honey bread and grain with a light tropical, grassy hop character in the faint background. Light medium body, chewy caramel, light stonefruit hop presence and medium bitterness. Well balanced flavour and some fruity yeast esters - reminiscent of an old ale minus the dark malts. Satisfying.

exeter (462) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours a dark amber colour with a micro-head and very little lacing. The major flavour is toasted malt with dark fruit and maybe some pine resin in the aftertaste. No, but really what is Paleo water other than a catch phrase?

reebtogi (4885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
330ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light fruits with some fresh hops. Taste is a fresh floral and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation that leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate. A well crafted amber ale that is both tasty and well balanced.

Pyobon (1102) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
(Bottle) Clear dark amber / medium brown with very slight white head. Subtle sweetish biscuity malt aroma. Fairly light body with pleasant soft carbonation. Malt and hops on the foretaste with the malt ebbing away for some lasting gentle bitterness. Notes of tea and maybe toffee. Pleasant beer.
