Gorse grows all around us, in spring it fills the air with it's distinctive coconut/pineapple scent. Farmageddon has combined a massive late addition of the painfully picked flowers (literally, serious prickles). Mosaic and Sorachi Ace were the hops chosen to compliment the gorse aroma. It makes a refreshing 'Pinacolada' beer with a golden colour.
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
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.

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!
