IPAs are the hoppier cousins of Pale Ales and range in colour from very pale golden to reddish amber. They are moderate to medium bodied with bold, intense aromas of herbal or citric character. IPAs are usually a higher strength and go well with strong, spicy food, noteably Indian and Mexican, or salty food.
Noted for their alluring colour, Golden Ales are light, refreshing and highly drinkable. With a restrained bitterness and dry finish it’s sunshine in a bottle! Enjoy with crustacean seafood, battered fish & chips or a quality burger.
Amble Ales are a copper or reddish-brown ale with well balanced hops and malt, making it rich and effortlessly flavoursome. It generally boasts a moderate to heavy body with toasted malt characters and a light fruitiness with slight notes of caramel. Amber Ales go great with chicken, BBQ pork, burgers, and caramel desserts
Wheat beers, such as Hefeweizen, are refreshing, pale in colour and often cloudy and unfiltered. Expect a slightly clovey taste and notes of banana and bubblegum. Wheat beers pair nicely with salad, seafood, sushi or light, fruity desserts.
True to it’s name, Brown Ales are a dark amber colour. They have a higher level of malt, which makes them more earthy and less bitter. They have a dry, medium-bodied, nutty flavour with slight notes of chocolate and toffee. Brown Ales drink nicely with roasted pork, grilled chicken and nutty dishes such as chicken satay.
Stouts feature a rich, creamy head, low to moderate levels of carbonation with huge roasted, chocolate and burnt malt flavours. Stouts are made using roasted malt or roasted barley to develop a dark, slightly astringent, coffee-like character. Match a Stout with roasted, smoked or barbequed foods, rich stews, pot pies, oysters or desserts.
Porter is a dark, almost black, top-fermenting style ale. Expect a complex, interesting beer with flavours of chocolate, roasted coffee and a hint of molasses-like sweetness. Recommended for the expert taster. Porters compliment roasted, smoked or barbequed foods, as well as sea scallops and chocolatey desserts.
