Cask: Special - 2008
A rustic brown ale brewed using smoked malt and juniper berries that will be a great complement to any autumn foods. With a nod to one of its key ingredients the beer has been named "SuJu" (SuperJuniper!). To create the beer the brew team chose a combination of Maris Otter, Vienna, Munich, Smoked, Amber and Chocolate malts. The hops used are a blend between one of Agostino’s favourite hops, Hallertau Mittelfrüh with notes of lemon marmalade, citrus peel and pepper, and Thornbridge’s latest discovery, Vanguard, an American offspring of Hallertau Mittelfrüh with strong aroma of raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and a touch of black grapes. The brew was seasoned with fresh organic juniper berries specially selected for their exuberant and warming, resinous, mango aromas.
