Below are the five beers that are on offer this week.
The Brugse Zot Blond has only been brewed since 2005, however, in those 10 years it has become an incredibly loved beer. It is pale blonde, with a sweet malty aroma and a gentle, grassy characteristic. The beer is fairly well carbonated with a big white head that releases all those subtle, complex aromas. A fresh, gentle citrus and soft fruit flavour keep this beer drinkable despite it’s reasonably high 6.0% ABV. This is definitely a modern-day classic!
Dale’s Pale Ale is their flagship beer and, at 6.5%, it’s pretty hefty! This high ABV allows for plenty of hop additions to the beer. A sweet, sticky, malt backbone lets the resinous, piny bitter hops shine. There are very few beers which showcase just what a proper American Pale Ale is supposed to taste like as much as this beer.
Harbour’s Light Ale is pretty much exactly what you would guess from the name. At 4.0% it is around the kind of ABV you’re looking for in a session peer. Neither the hops nor the malt dominate, instead they work together to provide a clean flavour and dry finish. The grassy, gentle bitterness gives just enough flavour to keep you interested, without overpowering the palate.
The All Day IPA was one of the first widely available session IPAs. First brewed to replace the lager that they were phasing out of their tap room, it was initially a seasonal but now composes about 50% of all the beer they brew – and they brew a lot of beer! Using Simcoe and Amarillo hops, it has the wonderfully complex, tropical fruit bitterness of bigger ABV IPAs. Although this won’t be mistaken for a 7.0% beer, it will nevertheless satisfy your hoppy cravings!
Their pale ale always comes out at a consistent 4.5% ABV. However, the use of fresh, new hops keeps things interesting. What’s incredible is that, despite constant tinkering, this beer almost always manages to be of a high quality. We’ve chosen this as our Local Beer for this weeks Hubbub because it is a great example of the constant search for new flavours and experimentation that we love in the craft beer scene.
