Sorachi Ace Randall Hopped Pale

Introducing the second edition of our "Randall" hopped Pale Ales. This is our regular Lunch Pale Ale brewed, fermented & filtered as normal, but just before it hits your glass it's passed through a device commonly known as a Randall. A Randall is a cartridge filter loaded with hops - in this case Sorachi Ace - which gives the beer a bold hop characteristic. Sorachi Ace hops, developed by Sapporo, are a relatively new Japanese variety known for their intense citrus flavor and lemony aroma. The end result is a remarkably crisp & hoppy sessionable Pale Ale. We plan to release several different Randalled variations of this beer over the next few months so it will be interesting to see how the beer changes with each variety.

Brewer's specs:

Malt: pale 2-row, Vienna, biscuit & crystal

Hops: East Kent Goldings & Styrian Goldings

SG: 10.5 Plato
45 IBU
4.4% ABV

The Randall: from the tank, through the hops and straight into your glass. Cheers!
