COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

’January 8th’ ale is brewed with Maris Otter Pale Malt from The famous Branthill Farm in North Norfolk and a little Munich Malt, which gives it a good malt flavour with a little caramel and roast in there too. It also has a fruity taste with some nice bitterness coming through and with a colour of around 22 EBC’s. Golding hops and Saaz hops have been added to give the ale a nice fruity aroma and a good balance of around 30 EBU’s.
