HARGREAVES HILL BREWING COMPANY
Great Beer Tasting of 5 Beers for $7
Beers we tasted:
Hargreaves Hill Pale Ale
Pale is brewed from a blend of specialty malts which add character and complexity to the flavour, and supply a rich cognac hue. Pale is bittered with American grown Cascade hops, and a late addition to the boil provides the citric floral notes which are released immediately after pouring, balanced with the toasty aromas of the crystal malt - a highly roasted malt variety.
Hargreaves Hill “The Bohemian”
Brewed with 100% pilsner malt, leaving it with a bright straw hue. Cold fermentation and extended lagering (cold storage) period ensures a crisp dryness, complemented by considerable bitterness. Dry hopped with Czech Saaz hops adds white pepper character to the finish.
Hargreaves Hill ESB (My Personal Favorite)
A “new world” interpretation of the classic English style. This ale features considerable crystal malt character, as a backbone to carry the hefty bitterness. Substantially dry hopped with carefully selected hops from either the U.S., NZ, or Australia, this adds aromatic and flavour notes of ripe passionfruit.
Hargreaves Hill Dunkelweizen
A stout in the “Foreign Export” style. With a pronounced roast barley character, this dark ale features generous palate weight, and considerable length.
From the 400 year old craft brewery in Salsburg, Austria, this German style pilsner is widely regarded as one of the finest. A well integrated lager, light coloured with Hallertauer noble hops, and a crisp dry finish.
