New Beer: Lime and Habanero Pale Ale
Lime and Habanero Pale Ale, 4.4%
Brick Brewery has always had a personal affiliation with Mexico and the flavours of Central America. Ian once owned and ran a Mexican street food truck before starting Brick and many of the team have travelled extensively throughout that area of the world, bringing back fond memories of food and flavours. We’ve finally put this nostalgia into a beer with the release of our latest special beer; Lime and Habanero Pale Ale.
Using HBC 472 hops, an experimental Neomexicanus hop, its aroma this hop brings are considered unique additions to a beer. Initially earthy with notes of coconut, the finish delivers a surprisingly fruity note, perfect for adding depth of flavour.
Commonly used in Mexican cooking, fresh habanero chillies were to the whirlpool and FV to impart their sweet, fruity and mild spice flavour. The addition of fresh lime zest adds a refreshing lift to the hops and mild spice to bring a recognisably Mexican flavour. Using primarily HBC 472 hops has resulted in a Pale Ale that has a juicy, tropical fruit flavour with very little bitterness.
Lime and Habanero Pale Ale will be available for trade sales Tuesday 22nd April and launched at the Taproom Sunday 5th May.
