It’s back, but not as we know it….same beer, better bottle…….It is now 1.32 Imperial pints (1.5 US pints or 750ml), but let’s not argue on technicalities!
BURTON IPA - INDIA PALE ALE
A traditional Burton-upon-Trent style India Pale Ale brewed with a freshly crushed blend of premium English malted Barley, crystal malt and sprinkle of limited edition Toasted Malted Oats from Crisp Malts in the UK; bittered and flavoured with two classic English hops, which all blend together to make a well-balanced, malty IPA that also exhibits the traditional Burton IPA spicy, marmalade finish. A joyous, party-style India Pale Ale that is fermented with top-fermenting English Ale yeast.
Jury tasting notes from Falstaff Beer Trophy 2019:
"Ein klassisches, englisches Oldschool- IPA. Von mittlerer Kuperfarbe mit leichter Trübung. Sehr dichte, stabile Schaumkrone. In der Nase reiffruchtig mit Noten von Quitten- und Apfelmarmelade, dazu malzig-karamellige Nuancen. Im Mund von mittlerer Dichte mit zupackender, harmonischer Bittere. Finish von Hopfennoten geprägt".
2019 Falstaff Beer Trophy (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) 92/100 points.
This was highest score awarded to a Swiss brewery in the IPA category and technically, with this score, I beat Carlsberg at beer :) (The Carlsberg-owned Valaisanne White IPA scored only 90/100)
