Big Autumn Flavours Falling Our Way

12 October 2014

Big Leaf Thumb

When it comes to beer, Autumn is by far our favourite season - brewers are playing with ingredients from the year's harvest and big flavours are being introduced to warm the hearts in readiness for the coming Winter.

If you're looking for the epitome of the season in a glass, then Anchor Big Leaf Maple Autumn Red™ (6.0% ABV)is as good as it gets. Inspired by a native California tree, its incredible huge leaves, its delicious syrup and the best colours of the California fall. A blend of Caramel and Pale malt, with a healthy addition of Cascade, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.

Anchor Big Leaf Maple Autumn Red™ (6.0% ABV) is available now from James Clay
in 24 x 355ml bottles or 19.5 litre keg.

P-P-P-Pick up a Pumpkin...

The Autumn crop of craft brewing wouldn't be complete without the appearance of pumpkin ales. Brooklyn's Post Road Pumpkin Ale (5.0% ABV) is a beer with a warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt centre and crisp finish. Literally hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber colour.

Flying Dog's 'The Fear' Imperial Pumpkin Ale (9.0% ABV) is a spicy, complex, rich and bold beer. Anything seasonally spicy or sweet will beautifully complement this rich and complex brew - embrace The Fear and achieve greatness!

BrewDog's Pumpkinhead (5.1% ABV) is just the tonic to spice up this year's Halloween and, on the subject of spice, Beavertown Stingy Jack (7.2% ABV) returns, boldly proclaiming to be "the best damn spiced pumpkin ale you will ever sup".

Timmermans Pumpkin Lambicus (4.0% ABV) is a sublime, graceful tasting beer tinted by Lambic acidity with dry fruity pumpkin, a convivial touch of Halloween!
