Cloak & Stagger
For this super-juicy pale ale O Brother have used two beautiful New Zealand hop varieties : Nelson Sauvin and Rakau and have doubled the dry-hop rate to deliver intense citrus, grapefruit, white grape, peach and lychee.
This beer is a limited release and part of their ‘Off The Wall Series’ featuring designs by some of Ireland’s top urban artists. Artwork by Dermot McConnaghy – DMC.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Carapils, Extra Pale, Flaked Oats, Marris Otter
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Nelson Sauvin, Rakau
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
