Description

A modern classic we think, that will deliver a thirst quenching pint reminding you of great pub beers, but whilst also bringing something of the new world beers into your glass.

As part our series of recipes based upon our original Dennis Kinds Galaxy Delight, we wanted to do a version with our favourite hop Centennial. This recipe changes the timings and hops but keeps the classic awesome grain bill. We’ve also switched the yeast out for Verdant yeast so it brings a little bit of mango sweetness to the party.

This beer is totally crushable, a glowing golden ale that will pour great from bottle or keg, or even better through a beer engine as a cask beer.. Its one of those that you can happily spend the afternoon enjoying with friends.

    This was a gift from Malt Miller due to a cock up with a delivery. It was my first homebrew on the Grainfather G30 – hit the gravity fine, no problems with the brew, the yeast fermented quickly (3 days!) giving off apricot flavours. After 18 days in the keg, this beer is one of the best pale ales I’ve ever drunk. Stone fruits in the aroma, floral slightly lemony hops, a crisp, biscuity malt flavour, and a well balanced bitter finish. I will brew this one again.
