OVERWORKS
Gooseberry Scottish Sour Ale

Pulling together the best of our barrels we created a blend of 'lost toys' - elegant, rugged and wild beers from various batches. The vinous, tannic and complex result is full of depth and subtly. Refermentation with white gooseberries balances the oaky wood character imparted by barrel-ageing.

The Brew Sheet

25

International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)

Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.

Style
Sour Ale

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

Malts
Oats, Pilsner, Rye, Wheat

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
Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Magnum

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!

INGREDIENTS

water, malted barley, wheat, oats, yeast, gooseberry, elderflower, hops.
