|An easy day for Adam.|
The team from the Newcastle bar on Dean Street came down to the brewery last month to brew a 6.5% US hopped amber ale with apricots and honey. It was a great day, the Brewdog staff got fully involved with the brew, including digging out the substantial amount of spent grain needed for such a strong beer. The beer is hopped with El Dorado, a relatively new breed of American hop which has a subtle bitterness and flavours which enhance the apricots. This bitterness is balanced with bucket loads of honey which blends seamlessly with the fruit, resulting in a complex flavour which unwinds as you drink the beer. The beer is cheekily named Amba Necta, spelt so as to avoid certain copyright infringements!
