ABV: 5.8%, IBU: 39. Grain to glass time 9 days. American Amber Ale. Amber colored body with subdued hop presence that allow the malts to shine. The grain bill is comprised of 80% 2-row malt, 8% Caramunich III, 8% Victory, and 4% Carafoam. The 2-row contributes very little color but a bulk of the fermentable sugars. The Caramunich III brings a round sweetness to the finish as well as a bulk of the copper color. Victory brings a nutty, toasted flavor as well as some color, and Carafoam adds dextrin sweetness and head retention. The hops focus on classic American varieties with 39 IBUs coming from the 60-minute addition of Amarillo, a hop known for it’s lemon and spice characteristics. Cascade brings most of the hop flavor with a 20-minute addition that attributes 19 IBUs and another Cascade addition that is purely for aromatics. Cascade has lots of grapefruit and citrus notes with a touch of pine. This beer is fermented with an English yeast strain that adds fruity esters and drops out of suspension quickly to yield a crystal clear body. The grain to glass time of this beer is approximately 10 days. This beer requires another 3 to 5 days in the BEERTAP to clarify and reach it’s yeast-free drinking zone, and this beer is crystal clear after 10 days in the tap!
