Session-beer specialist brewery Small Beer Brew Co has unveiled its newest creation, designed to delight the palate of those seeking moderate alcohol consumption.
The new beer, aptly called Session Pale, is the brewery’s first ale and joins the original lineup, which comprises a pale lager (2.1% abv), a dark lager (1% abv) and a steam beer (2.7% abv).
Session Pale is a 2.5% abv golden ale, pours slightly hazy and generates an inviting creamy head. Like the entire Small Beer core range, and despite the modest abv content, this brew delivers a lot more than its name suggests.
The nose has a warming malty personality, balanced out by a green yet gentle herbaceous hoppiness.
On the palate it shows all the characteristics of a classic golden ale, unveiling flavours of bread crust, malt and hay, then hints of freshly cut grass and a touch of peppery spiciness in the finish.
Moderate alcohol consumption is only part of Small Beer's ethical approach to brewing. All products are vegan friendly and made keeping a close eye on sustainable practices. The brewery is cleaned with recovered heat and water, electricity is generated through renewable resources and all packaging is fully recyclable.
