Yeastie Boys His Majesty 2010 (750ml Bottle)
WARNING: Contrary to what you might be thinking, the contents within this bottle are not the same as deliciously drinkable IPA we released under this label in 2009. It's a "vintage" thing. This year's model uses a base of English malt to give the beer a deep red hue and rich malty base, while a combination of UK and US hops lend a dazzling flavour and cracking bite. Lovingly brewed, conditioned to optimum ripeness, and bottled by our friends at Invercargill Brewery. Enjoy this beer, and all other great craft beer, in appreciation and moderation.
English Strong Ale
Malty, with complex fruity esters. Some oxidative notes are acceptable, akin to those found in port or sherry. Hop aromas not usually present, due to extended age. Medium amber to very dark red-amber color. Malty and usually sweet. Alcoholic strength should be evident, though not overwhelming. Medium to full body alcohol should contribute some warmth. An ale of significant alcoholic strength, though usually not as strong or rich as barleywine. Usually tilted toward a sweeter, more malty balance. Often regarded as winter warmers, and often released as seasonal beers.
