Basmati Blonde

A light, crisp and refreshing ale

This blonde beauty is the love child of India’s beloved Basmati Rice, from which it gets its lightness, colour and floral aroma, and the German Pilsner malt, that gives it its malty character, the combination of which, results in the perfect session beer. Also found are traces of noble hops from Europe, responsible for the light tangerine aroma and flavour, which blend gorgeously with the oh-so-famous aroma of the Indian Basmati rice.

Despite a richness of flavours that mark this one as almost royal, it is a light, malt-oriented craft beer, ideal for easy drinking.
