Serving temperature

Serve this beer between 7°C and 10°C; stick it in the fridge for 90 minutes.

As ever, be wary of over-chilling your beer. More chill means less flavour. To learn more read my post on recommended serving temperatures.

Flavours to expect

This is an American pale ale – a style we’ve come to know pretty well over the years. Expect bready malt flavours with a snappy, clean bitterness and a bright, floral aroma from the hops. The hops used are:

  • Cascade: lychees, floral, grapefruit
  • Amarillo: floral, citrus, orange

Food pairings

I’m going to leave you in the capable hands of Garrett Oliver here, with his recipe for brewmasters burgers made specifically to go with his beer. But if that’s not for you, his other suggestions include: salads, seafood, quiches, lightly spicy dishes, adventures, parties, brunch, cheddar, feta, and concerts.
