CRAFT KEG RANGE GETS A PALER LOOK
Posted on  by
The category: Hook Norton Brewery News
We are proud to announce the latest addition to our craft keg range, Cotswold Pale 4.4% ABV.
Reflecting the golden Cotswold stone of the area, this pale, crisp beer has light citrus notes and bold bitterness. A variety of hops from around the world have been skilfully combined including English Cascade and Chinook for gentle bitterness. Slovenian Celia for sweetness and American Amarillo, Chinook and Willamette for boldness.
Aiming to bring the same quality to keg that they do to cask ale, our brewers have worked hard to preserve all the flavours and aromas of the top quality malt and hops to create a satisfying and refreshing craft keg beer.
Cotswold Pale is the third new addition to our keg range joining the multi award-winning Red Rye 4.7%, red in colour, beautifully fruity with five hops and five malts combining to produce a symphony of fruitiness and the dark and mellow Merula Stout 4.2% , based on the 1899 brew records for Oatmeal Stout with subtle spicy notes. More craft keg beers are planned using the in-house pilot plant and kegging line with a small batch bottling line also planned.
Brewer, James Clarke said “Here at Hooky we strive to offer something different but always produced with the same levels of passion and commitment to quality be that in cask, keg or bottle. Our keg range is a reflection of that and we are excited about where we can go to next with this. Cotswold Pale has been very popular since we launched it and we look forward to producing more of the same alongside our core and seasonal range of cask ales. ”
Cotswold Pale is available now in selected Hook Norton pubs and available to the free trade.
