Swannay Brewery - Island Hopping

Swannay Brewery - Island Hopping

ABV : 3.9%        Style : Golden Ale/ Blonde Ale

Ingredients: Water, barley malt (Maris Otter), wheat malt, Nelson Sauvin hops, yeast. 

 

This beer pours a clear light amber with a thin white head and sting laceing.

 The nose is a high malt note with gentle orange zest, hopps, faintest note of little melted butter and mild peanut powder.

Palate is light with a light to moderate carbonation that is barely notasable 

The flavor of this beer are initially bitter with the malt and barley forword and a dry earthy note that is very pronounced.  There is a caramel maltiness note that is present after the first few sips and continues through out the beer. There is a strong peat after taste that leves your mouth dry

It’s a light citrus fresh ale with an earthy hop that threatens to over-balance but just holds on.
