IPA - American
Citra and Amarillo hops are at the forefront of flavor and aroma. Orange and tropical notes like passion fruit and mango permeate the palette. However, at 7% ABV, the malt backbone is enough to help balance the 50 IBUs of bitterness.
Originally produced by ale brewers to compete with American lagers of the Northeast, Mid-atlantic, and Canada. It’s been known as the original “lawn mower” beer. Clean, refreshing and easy to drink with a little more character than your typical American lager.
Red Ale - Irish
An “easy drinker”. Caramel malt flavors balance a subtle dry roastiness creating a nearly crisp finish with a hint of roast that lingers pleasantly on the palette.
Oatmeal Stout (Nitro)
Stout - Oatmeal
Roasted and caramel malts with the smooth silkiness of oats create a coffee and cream flavor. Usually the roasted malts create a somewhat acrid finish. However, in this version, the finish is much smoother than one would expect.
A rich malt profile with hints of caramel and chocolate. Raisin and plum-like esters add to the complexity. Subtle spicy notes from the Belgian yeast and Styrian Goldings hops balance out the malts enough to leave a moderately dry finish. The effervescent carbonation makes the beer “Taste great!” and be “Less filling!”
Scottish Export Ale
This is a malt-focused creation brewed a bit stronger than normal for "export". It has a rich caramel malt flavor along with a toasty breadcrumb malt richness. The bitterness is just enough to balance this rich malt bill leaving a somewhat crisp finish.
N. German Altbier
The traditional style of beer from Düsseldorf. “Alt” means old in German and refers to the “old” style of brewing which uses ale yeasts rather than the more modern cold fermenting lager yeasts. Although, its characteristics are very similar to lagers. A clean and complex maltiness of rich baked bread dominates with some restrained noble hop usage to balance. The finish is fairly crisp with a little dryness from the hops.
A pale and spicy Trappist-type ale. A soft and grainy malt character supports the floral hop bitterness to produce a dry finish. Esters and phenols are complex in this one with Citrusy notes and some peppery spice-like phenols. The interplay between the yeast character, hops, malt and alcohol is what makes this beer different. As with all Trappist ales, smooth and deceptive ABV are among the chief characteristics.
Belgian Dark Strong
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
A complex blend of rich malt and dark fruit flavors. The malt flavors are richly bready and deep caramel that marry into the raisin and plum-like dark esters. At over 10 percent ABV, it remains deceptively light and smooth. This beer is like James Bond: complex, rich, smooth, but dangerous.
