Garage Project Bastard Rye (650ml Bottle)
Rye, it's a bastard to brew with, but it's worth it. This imperial strength rye blond, aged for three years in freshly emptied American bourbon barrels, pushes the boundries of what a beer can be. Velvet smooth, with the heat and vanilla-wood depth of a spirit, this brew is intentionally brewed with low carbonation and is best savoured unchilled. Enjoy with caution.
Golden Ale/Blond Ale
There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional "Canadian Ale", an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs - a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up - very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
