Brasserie McAuslan (St Ambroise)
St. Ambroise India Pale Ale
Brewery: McAuslan Brewing
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 355ml Bottle
India Pale Ales were brewed in the 19th century with long sea travel in clipper ships across the equator to India in mind. In order to endure these rigours, the beers were high in alcohol and brewed with plenty of hops. The hops provided a spicy bitterness balancing the malt and maintaining the quality of the ale through the natural antibacterial properties of hops. McAuslan has brewed a classic IPA using a blend of pale and specialty malts giving the beer a New World Twist.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Cumquat aroma. Malts are dominant until about half way through then cumquat and lychee flavours are quite pleasant. Medium bitter finish.
