An an ode to the Seshlords of Yorkshire and the North of England beyond. Northern Lights builds on a base of German Vienna malt with heavy doses of Flaked Oats and Wheat along with a touch of Caramalt. Mashed super-hot with a particular process in our mash mixer we’ve done a decent job of retaining a huge amount of body and drinkability for such a low ABV beer. Hopped heavily in the whirlpool with Mosaic, it’s then fermented on London Ale III yeast before being dry hopped in two stages with Mosaic and Vic Secret respectively at a total of 16g/L.
A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates.
Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter. No better partner to a lunchtime snack!
