Toasty Amber Lager
Our Vienna Lager waltzes into Christmas. Deck the halls with boughs of holly, mistletoe and beer. Pucker up for oranges and lemons on the nose. Followed by an extortion racket of flavour marmalade, toast and lemon cheesecake precede biscuit and bread crust, filling out a snappy bitter sweet palate. Crisp, fresh and festive. Capiche? Mistletoe Mafia - The Godfather of giving.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
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.
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
Pilsner, Vienna, Munich, Carahell, Carared
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.
Mandarina Bavaria, Saphir, Tettnang
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!
Water, malted barley, hops, yeast.
