Представляем вашему вниманию наш новый сорт пива Queen Mary в практически забытом стиле Бёртон Эль! У нашего главного технолога недавно родилась дочь Мария, и мы решили повторить традиции английских пивоваров, которые делали специальные варки пива к рождению детей. Часть этой партии будет сохранена до её 18-летия! Мы очень старательно подошли к выбору рецепта, и остановились на Burton Ale - необычном крепком светлом эле. Такое пиво варилось в городе Бёртон еще до того, как он стал известен своими Индийскими Светлыми Элями. Пиво, как и имперские стауты, пользовалось огромной популярностью в России и Польше, и именно запрет на импорт этого пива стал одной из причин, по которой пивовары Бёртона обратили свой взгляд на другой рынок - Индию. Бёртон Эль - крепкое и очень сладкое пиво. Исторически его цвет колебался от светло-янтарного до орехово-темного. За основу мы взяли рецепт 1843 года и использовали только светлый солод. Традиционно пиво сильнно охмелялось, в том числе претерпевало сухое охмеление. На основу у нас пошел хмель Fuggles, на сухое охмеление мы добавили огромное количество замечательного английского хмеля Goldings. Сбраживали мы это пиво двумя расами дрожжей, в том числе и специальным штаммом из города Бёртон. Ну и куда же без знаменитой жесткой бёртоновской воды? Мы поколдовали над химическим составом воды и добавили немного гипса и других солей, чтобы довести воду до похожего состава. В результате получился крепкий (11%) сладкий светлый эль с великолепным хмелевым ароматом луговых трав и карамели, ярким карамельным солодовым вкусом и хорошей горечью в послевкусии. Это пиво нужно пить медленно и вдумчиво, потягивая каждый глоток и осмысляя историю. Пиво отлично подойдет к праздничному ужину в качестве диджестива, заменив собой херес.
Приглашаем всех попробовать Королеву Марию и еще раз прикоснуться к истории!

Please welcome our new beer Queen Mary brewed in a very special and almost forgotten style - Burton Ale! Just recently a daughter of our brewmaster has been born. Her name is Maria, so we decided to follow the English brewer’s tradition to brew some special batch dedicated to the child birth. The part of this batch will be stored until her 18th birthday. We were carefully working on the recipe and stopped at Old Burton Ale - quite unusual strong pale ale. This beer was brewed in the Burton-on-Trent long before it became famous for it’s India Pale Ales. This beer in the the same way as Imperial Stouts was very popular in Russia and Poland. And it’s because of Russian taxes increase on pale beer import the Burton brewers decided to switch to another market - India. Burton Ale - strong and sweet beer. Historically the colour of the beer was pale-amber (in 19th century) to deep-nut-brown (in 20th). We took the recipe of 1843 as the basis for this beer and used pale malt only. Traditionally this beer was heavily hopped. We took Fuggles hops for bittering and East Kent Goldings for dry hopping. We used two strains of yeasts to ferment this beer including a special yeasts from Burton. And of course the water was well prepared to mimic the high in minerals water content of Burton. We have added a bit of gypsum and other salts. The result is a strong 11% ABV sweet pale ale with astonishing hoppy grassy and earthy aroma and hints of caramel in the nose, bright malty taste and solid bitterness in aftertaste. This beer needs to be consumed slowly and meditatively, taking every sip carefully with history recognition. This beer will perfectly sit on a festive table.
We are welcoming everyone to taste Queen Mary Old Burton Ale and touch the history!

kraddel (8762) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2017
Sampled at VCBF 2017. Thnx for sharing Eugene and Tim ! Really psyched about trying a Burton ale !!! Pours rather clear amber, small white head. Smell is very rich in orange, heavy maltprofile ( thick and caramel ) Taste is full, bit bitter, super creamy body. Full maltyness ( sweet, intense caramel ) hoparoma is there, but far less bitter than an IPA.

Thank you kraddel & tderoeck! Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ VCBF 2017. 2016 Vintage. Great history lesson / throwback treat. Amber orange, little white head. Nose is sweet oily toffee, low oxidation, orange peel, sugar. Taste is boozy orange peel, toffee marmalade, oily, more monolithic in taste than you would expect, bit boozy with toffee. Body is warming oily toffee, marmalade, oily. Feels like it might benefit a bit from a touch more oxidation so well made & well suited fro aging as inteded. Nice work for sure. Neat.

tomaz (91) - , GERMANY - OCT 23, 2016
Joli orange foncé. Mousse dense ne tombe pas, un exploit pour une bière aussi forte. Au nez, ça sent l’alcool bien évidemment et le grain, un peu malté. Dégustation 0.1 l à le Braufest Berlin 2016, Miel acacia, grain avec force.
