COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled & occasionally Keg; Regular.

The world of beer seems to be going through a whirlwind romance with hops right now. Just as phenolic, peaty whisky is in huge demand (a style distillers had to hide in blends in the 70s) hop-bombs are becoming commonplace in the craft beer community. We love hops too although we don’t quite take our bitterness to levels that others might. We’ve added a healthy portion of American bittering and aroma hops to our Pale and balanced them beautifully with a delicate sweetness that our Belgian yeast provides. We hope that you find it familiar enough to adopt it as a new favourite and different enough to make it memorable.

Mortlach (1775) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
330ml bottle @Mad for Beer (Rome). Deep golden/light amber appearance with a big off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some diacetyle, metallic notes... damn! Flavour is malty too, bread, little hops... definitely not in a good condition! Medium body, medium carbonation. I’d like to try it again.

Aromas of orange citrus, light floral hops, light yeasty note. Taste is light bitter, following with quite a sweet caramel note. High, prickly carbonation. Sweet floral finish.

stravale (2714) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton, Manchester [261114]
Deep orange amber, hazy, big frothy white head, slight lacing
Aroma of soft citrus, some lemon, dab of grapefruit
Taste of soft zest hops, soft lemon and grapefruit, soft sweet fruity caramel malts, dab of yeast
Palate - Medium carb and body, fairly sweet, soft bitter. Finish as main flavour, more bitter yeast
Overall - Found this rather ordinary - the best of the 3 I tried - 1 was poor, the other (Dubbel) was infected and gushing and had to be thrown out
