The English are back and have graced us with another beer on the traditional beer engine! This time we are pumping out an ale that is designed be to served through cask- the ordinary/ session English bitter.
According to some sources, the term session beer was coined back in England during WW1. At this time the government placed restrictions on the hours at which alcohol can sold into two “sessions” – a lunchtime session and an evening session. They also placed restrictions on the alcohol strength of beer making low ABV a law. Weirdly, they also didn’t allow bar patrons to buy beer for other people… But these low ABV English ales only became refined and have been delicious for at least 100 years!
Crewman’s Cask Ale
English Ordinary Bitter, 4.1% ABV, 33 IBUs
A Captain is nothing without his crew, and this cask ale is the crewman’s drink of choice after a long day’s toil. A traditional, low-ABV English bitter or pale ale with a rounded malt and sharp hop profile. Expect a refreshing bitterness, fruity yeast character and light malt taste. Pulled through the English beer engine for a frothy head and low carbonation. Deliciously easy drinking!
