Yeastie Boys His Majesty 2015 - Red Oat Ale (750ml Bottle)
His Majesty 2015 smells and tastes red, without looking it. The oat malt gives this ale a silky smooth mouthfeel of an
amber ale, without introducing the strong caramel or toffee notes that many specialty malts bring. There is hint of red
to the eye, rose gold perhaps, and a little biscuity note from the addition of roasted wheat. Then, at the business end,
the beer is balanced with a heady mix of hop varieties from the USA (Zythos, Cascade and Falconers Flight) to give great citrus aroma and a firm bitterness.
A style without definition, amber ales range from bland, vaguelly caramelly beers to products with a fairly healthy malt and hop balance. Often the differentiation between a quality amber and an American Pale is that the amber might have more dark malt character, or a less assertive hop rate.
