Amber Blend #40 is a blend of five barrels bottled in April this year.
Our Amber recipe calls for a blend of freshly roasted grains in combination with pale malt to develop deep red colour and malt sweetness. Light levels of hopping balance with the toasty characters in an extended cooler fermentation with our house mixed culture. Following fermentation, we rack Amber into French oak barrels to further develop a smooth palate and express funky, tart characteristics from our indigenous yeast. We select and blend well evolved barrels for a beer with a desired malt forward character. The slightly heavier characteristics of this beer make a fantastic complement to food and offer a variety of flavours to both compare and contrast in pairing.
Luke's tasting notes - Red floral lift resides amongst the rich and sweet aromas of dried fruits, cooking spices, toasted nuts and dark chocolate. A truly lovely and complex nose. Beautiful upfront pop of sweet currants and fresh baked bread. Sherbety cola, oak spice and malt drive the core of the beer. There’s more red fruit on the back palate as the acid rushes through in a wave of freshness leaving a sublime hazelnut finish.
