Cheddar Ales – Karst Amber Rye 4.5%
This is a dark chestnut colour, with a grapefruit aroma and hints of toffee. The taste has a hop bitter start, with a malt background going into a citrus grapefruit finish.
This is more an IPA, with the stronger hop bitterness than a traditional Amber ale.
This is a bottle conditioned ale from the Somerset micro brewer Cheddar Ales based on the outskirts of the village of Cheddar. It is brewed with Munich, Cars and rye and Maris Otter malts, with Bramling Cross and American Calypso and Mosaic hops
