Summer. Lazily flowing time and thoughts wander around unguarded. The summer heat slows down busy hubbub of the city life and nature is friendly towards us. In the outside, there is the sweet aroma of the linden flowers and bright shining sun.
Brewed to celebrate our memories of last summer, using wildflower honey from Estonian forests and replacing our summer Sun with big bright orange.
Experience: The reddish brown beer has a beige head that is quickly devoured by all the added oranges. In the aroma there is orange. Not some abstract citrus flavor but bright orange. Like in your favorite triple sec.
Flavor is dominated by honey and malt. It drags your thoughts to the pastry area. Old school honey bread, if anyone still remembers it.
In the aftertaste, bitter zest will balance the sweetness of the honey.
Einstein was the first dog ever to travel through time to the future. A small step to the future is hiding in this bottle also. This is the New England IPA – a style of beer that has tempted the craft beer friends with its gargantuan aroma of hops, slight bitterness and pleasantly fruity presence all over the world lately.
And one more thing – this beer is supposed to be terribly hazy.
It has been a long day, hiking on snaking trails through the wilderness. Forests filled with the scent of pine resin, crystal clear streams and intoxicating aroma of bog flowers. In such evening, a piece of bread, shared among friends next to campfire can taste like best thing it the world.
People in the North have always known that ice-cold beer did not mix well with the freesing cold weather. So for the wintertime they brewed a strong beer spiced with herbs and honey, suitable for heating over the fire.
„Mulled Ale“ has been brewed with those old traditions in mind. This ale, spiced with exotic herbs and Estonian honey, tastes best when heated to quite high temperatures and raisins, cinnamon or dried berries added to the liking.The brave ones can add a lightly beaten egg yolk.
