Emersonís Brewers Reserve Motueka Special


Brewed by Emersonís Brewing Company (Lion Breweries - NZ (Lion Nathan Co.)
Dunedin, New Zealand
Style: Amber Ale | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.7%
Research is always an on going process at Emersonís and we like to understand as much as possible about the kiwi hops. So Richard decided to look inside the ďHop cupboardĒ for new hop varieties at the New Zealand Hop Product store in Nelson. There he discovered a trial hops that has all the makings of superiority and he decided that it should be used in this monthís Brewerís Reserve We have brewed an amber coloured ale with this hops variety, which is still to be named. Although not commercially available, it certainly struck a chord with Richard. The result - a delicious malt base, brings forth a toasty, biscuity, nutty flavour with generous body to intermingle with the tropical fruit hop flavour. Hints of guava, passionfruit and apricots reveal themselves on the palate. Although there are plenty of hops in the beer, the taste is remarkably smooth with a spicy bitterness that balances the toasty maltiness.
