Not Quite Time to Brew Yet.
There's a season for all things, including beer recipe kits. And this seasonal kit won’t be back in stock until the time is right for brewing it. Until then, you’re welcome to hang around and read the tasting notes. Or go brew another beer [link to beer-recipe-kits] to tide you over!
This strong-ish American amber ale is built for the cold: a substantial gravity for snowy weather, but a fast turnaround so you can get some holiday cheer from fermentor to pint ASAP. Malty but not too sweet, just enough bitterness to balance, a definite but not overstated citrus hop profile (bolstered by real citrus!), this is far from your normal holiday ale.
Its saturated copper-red hue comes from a blend of malts: pale chocolate adds a warm, toasty dimension and suggestions of black tea to the fig-and-toffee profile of two authentic English caramel malts. The earthy and dark dried-fruit character of the malt segues into bright floral citrus, thanks to the resinous lime-and-flowers velvet punch of Styrian Celeia and a charge of sweet orange peel at the end of the boil!
