Sunshine Powercut Mild Dark Ale (330ml Bottle)
There is only one power feed into Gisborne and it died the day of a brew. The brew got dumped after Richard proclaimed “there’s no alcohol in that” but the name Power Cut was born for our low alcohol high flavour Mild Dark Ale. We built a big malt base with pale, aurora and shepherds delight (responsible for the deep red colour) malts that we mashed hotter to extract loads of flavour with less fermentable sugars. Then we whacked it with Legacy (US) and Brewer’s Gold (UK) hops that have over delivered on warm red and blackberry flavours. Powercut has all the powerful flavour of a real beer.
Given this name because the style was developed around Vienna, Austria. A light to medium body, with a malty aroma. Beers produced and labeled as Marzen or Oktoberfest are likely to be of the Vienna Lager style.
