COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The city and province of Utrecht has got a great history (and future) of brewing beer. It deserves a beer that shows our appreciation and what more could we do than make this Utrecht Strong Ale. Big hops dominate the aroma and big malts support them in taste. Put your hands up for Utrecht, we love that city!

Hazy deep amber - red beer, tidy tan head. Palate is soft and a little dry. Nice nose of marmalade and red berries. Creamy malt. The hops follow the nose - marmalade and lesser red berry fruits. Floral dried fruits with a tangy tangerine note. Finishes soft with a mild hop tang. An unusual and tasty beer, very drinkable.
