Altitude The Posturing Professional (500ml Bottle)
Dedicated, and named, for the posturing mountain professionals the world over, that feel they are the pinnacle of human evolution. The Posturing Professional is a New Zealand pale ale that is intended as a flavourful session beer.
Best enjoyed after a hard day on one of our alpine playgrounds, it is designed with New Zealand’s brewing heritage in mind. The flavours are a salute to our brewing forefathers and their innovations that lead to the Kiwi artisan beer culture.
Using New Zealand malts and old school New Zealand hops, the finished beer delivers a dry palate with clean spiciness and a bit of sweet lemon and honey. The nose has notes of citrus and cut grass.
English Pale Ale
Classic English Pale Ales are not pale but rather are golden to copper colored and display English variety hop character. Distinguishing characteristics are dryness and defined hop taste, but more malt balance than what youll typically find in an American Pale Ale. Great to drink with all sorts of meats including roast beef, lamb, burgers, duck, goose, etc. Note that the term pale ale is used in England to signify a bottled bitter, and in that way there is no such thing as English Pale Ale to the English. The style is a North American construct, borne of the multitude of pale ales that pay homage to these bottled bitters - Bass in particular - and therefore the majority of true examples of the style are found outside Britain.
