Beer brewed Samhain on November 1 and is named in honor of the Celtic New Year , celebrated on this day. We planned to cook Pale Ale American-style , but at the same time wanted to get something more traditional and English : balanced -session beer that you can drink all night with friends for spiritual conversation. Digging in history, we have found a compromise and cooked version of American pale ale , dating back to the birth of this style (70 - 80s of the 20th century ) , when American brewers want to receive similar to British bitters class, but because of limited access to English hops they had to use local varieties of hops. Samhain APA no different extreme flavor and taste - it is very beverage beer every day, with a bright amber color and a pleasant mild citrus aroma formed American hops Amarillo and Cascade, added at a late stage of the cooking , plus dry hopping.
Very light body , dry and confident bitter in taste and aftertaste - what more do you need for a long night?
