Strong Ale

'Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants to see us happy.'
Benjamin Franklin

I am quietly quaffing James Squire's Malt Shovel Brewery newest beer, Australian Strong Ale. It's a limited release, which is sad. I could go for this as an alternivie to the MSB Porter Ale.

From the site: "James Squire Australian Strong Ale is a no-expense-spared beer, brewed to the glowing russet colour of autumn leaves. Crystal wheat and several malted barleys produce deep toasted flavours with a rich toffee edge. Lifted floral hop notes of rare Australian hops complement the profoundly malty, biscuity flavours and the apricot/fig esters created by wild ale fermentation. "

And it's a very yummy beer indeed.
