Northern Monk: Striding Edge Can 3% [440ml]
They say "In 'Striding Edge' you could say we had our biggest challenge to date. As part of our Patrons Project we set about creating a 3.0% ABV session beer with a flavour, intensity and mouthfeel of a drink of much higher strength. Starting with the base, we made sure our water was super soft and well balanced. Enough sulphates to lift the hops, enough chloride to smooth out the mouthfeel. For the malt we trialled a new Super Pale variety, making this by far the palest beer we have ever brewed, and made up 1/4 of the grist with oats for the creamy mouthfeel they contribute. Ensuring the mash temperature was as high as we could go while ensuring some enzyme activity, we filled the wort with complex sugars to ensure a higher finishing gravity and consequently a chunkier body. We then layered in as much hop flavour across 3 dry-hop additions, going with west coast favourites Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic for an intense pine, grassy and citrus character, backed up hints of orange and mango from a bonus Citra addition."
We say "Although this is a limited brew don't limit yourself to one can of this extremely drinkable pale. Juicy sweet Victorian style lemonade with a nicely light bitterness, making it a perfectly refreshing pale!2
