Newstead 3 Quarter Time Session Ale
Brewery: Newstead Brewing
Style: Pale Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Making a 3.4% beer takes finesse and slight of hand, keeping it balanced shows the craft of a great Brewer. Traditional Ale malt may be the backbone, but it is the Carapils and Carahell that give mouthfeel and body to diminish lightweight preconceptions.
Amarillo hops in the boil and a mix of Amarillo and Mosaic hops during the whirlpool as well as dry hopping give this beer just enough bitterness balanced with an abundant but not overpowering flavour. Session Ale is what it says, something to drink a few of whenever you see fit.
