5 Seasons The Big O (Certified Organic Beer)


Brewed by 5 Seasons Brewing Company
Atlanta, Georgia USA
Style: English Strong Ale | Ratings: 16 | Alcohol: 6.8%
Big O is an organic version of the traditional English Strong Ale style. While not at the high end of this style in alcohol content, it boasts a respectable 6.8% ABV. It has a bracing hop bitterness balanced by mild alcohol warmth and a rich roasted malt character. New Zealand Pacific Gem Organic Hops were used for bittering with English Organic East Kent Goldings and Organic Cascade Hops from the Pacific Northwest provide hop flavor and a very mild earthy and citrus hop aroma. An ample amount of dark roasted malt of English and Belgian style (all organically grown) give this brew a deep color and slight toffee and coffe-like finish. This is definitely a brew to be savored with good food.
