Flavours to expect
It’s a pale ale, which most likely means it’s familiar territory for a lot of us. But just in case you’re not familiar with the style, you should expect: a light to medium body, a clean biscuity malt character, with moderate bitterness and distinct fruity hops flavours showing through. The hops used in this beer are:
- Mandarina Bavaria: tangerine, fruity, sweet
- Cascade: lychees, floral, grapefruit
- El Dorado: apricot, peaches
Pale ales work with a wide range of foods. The classic pork, burgers, sausages, salami route is going to be a safe bet. It should work well with a lot of cheeses too, including good old cheddar. Maybe try it with a light dish of chargrilled veg – roasted peppers should work well. Just watch the intensity of flavours – this is a pale ale and not an IPA so keep things light and the flavours clean.
