Nico Köln Lager:
Pours pale golden. Fragrant herbal hop aroma with lemon citrus and green apple notes. Light on the palate, a touch of bready maltiness, with more assertive hop character. The crisp bitterness makes it eminently drinkable. Look for the pear drop notes from the distinctive Kölsch yeast.
Our take on a classic London Porter. Based on the late nineteenth-century interpretation of the style. Complex rich malt, with aromas of chocolate, coffee, caramel and malty biscuit. More chocolate, coffee and black treacle on the palate. Rich full body, robust bitterness and a subtle earthy/lemony hop character combine to create a distinctively dry and drinkable dark ruby coloured beer.
As this is a new release, it isn't in Adrian's latest book, but featured as his 'Beer of the Week' in his Daily Star column.
The English IPA offers strong hop flavours from a blend of four English varieties (Emperor, Jester, Godiva & UK Chinook) that give softer stone-fruit flavours on the nose and palate than the more traditional UK hops. Enjoy notes of tangerine and pine with a long, moreish bitterness and aromas of freshly cut grass with hints of blackcurrant and strawberry.
