Black Brewing Session Ale

Style
Summer Ale
ABV
3.5%

Sitting somewhere between a summer ale and an Australian pale ale, Session Ale (an evolution of the beer originally called Fresh Ale) has the right to claim the title of Black Brewing's chief esky filler. Pouring with straw-tinged, crystalline clarity, it's a beer that couldn't be more aptly named.

Refreshment is the name of the game here but with an unfussy agenda there’s still room for subtle detail. Calypso and BRU1 hops imbue light lemon and grassy notes leading to a subdued bitterness that finishes crisp; that said, it’s the furtive minerality that adds to drinkability.

The light body and tight carbonation only help move things along, as does the reduction in ABV to mid-strength levels, to the next Session Ale.
