Belgian Chateau Pilsner malt lends the beer a pleasant bready malt character and a deep golden colour. A small percentage of brewing sugar keeps the body light. Specialty yeast strains impart spicy phenolics and fruit esters reminiscent of pear and a hint of tropical fruit. German Hallertauer hops give the beer a mild bitterness. Ageing in Lark Distillery whisky barrels give the beer a rounded oak character and a dry finish. Though deceptively light bodied, the 9.6% abv means this is a beer meant to be shared with good company.
