THE BEERS

HOW DO THEY TASTE

 

THE HONEY BEER: TASTING NOTES

Hiver is a dry, crisp and refreshing blonde beer that has been brewed with honey. We use honey as an ingredient, as is traditional to this beer style, rather than as an additive. This means that much of the sugar is fermented out so only the aroma and flavour remain.

Hiver is golden straw in colour and opens with an inviting honey and biscuit aroma. Through a sparing use of challenger and UK cascade hops, a hint of citrus brings depth and balance to the nose without overpowering the delicate honey esters.

We use Urban London, English Blossom and Heather honeys during fermentation and conditioning to produce a beer of medium body and low bitterness. The beer remains unpasteurised to enable these subtle flavours to shine through and the honey adds a creamy mouthfeel to create a moreish
and refreshing blonde beer.

THE HONEY ALE: TASTING NOTES

For this honey brown ale we ferment raw blossom and heather honeys to complement and add depth to darker roasted malts. A light hop bitterness finishes a flavoursome and unpasteurised brown ale.

Beer derives all of its colour from the malted barley base and in this craft ale, our darker roasted malts produce a copper coloured beer with a rich, chocolatey nose. The Admiral and Bramling Cross hops support the fruitiness of the raw Warwickshire blossom honey, and offer a delicate but lingering bitter finish.

Our Beekeeper David Stott of Tomlow Bees, describes this honey as ‘The Worcester sauce of honeys’ due to the late season forage sources of bramble, clover, rosebay willowherb, heather and ivy.

The perfect balance of roasted barley, honey and a refreshing
hop finish.

HOW TO MAKE BEER PANCAKES

In a large bowl, stir together 125g sieved plain flour, 4tblsp sugar, 3/4tsp baking powder and ½ tsp salt. Pour in 1 beaten egg, 250ml of Hiver and 30g of melted butter; stir with a whisk until blended.

Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Coat with vegetable oil. Spoon about 4 tablespoons (60ml) of batter onto the hot surface for each pancake. When bubbles appear on top of the pancakes, flip, and cook until browned on the other side.

Enjoy plain, with blueberries, or with bacon and maple syrup.
