12 x 330ml Peated Pale (5.8%)
Big Ideas Series 07 Peated Pale (5.8%) x12
This straw coloured, full-flavoured pale ale is infused with peat smoked Scottish barley and brewed to a sturdy 5.8%, offering a uniquely complex take on the style. The peat is front and centre here, supported by a combination of pale malts and fruity hops, offering a gloriously delicate balance of sweet, savoury and smokey with a crisp, dry finish.
Like a good Islay single malt, the peat aroma leaps out of the glass first and you understand immediately that this is no mild mannered everyday pale ale. The first sip is all peat, phenolic and fruity, before layers of oily rags, spicy marmalade, banana, bacon and a balancing liquorice sweetness are revealed. This is a great food pairing beer, try it with charred aubergines, middle eastern lamb or a good quality blue cheese.
