|Initially brewed as a one off celebration of the 2014 hop harvest using new season whole cone NZ Cascade and NZ Styrian Golding hops, Forty South proved so popular we were inspired to add it to the core range. Forty South is our take on the traditional I.P.A style and provides a great contrast to Field Way Pale Ale our A.P.A. Inspired by English classics like Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and Worthington Whiteshield, Forty South takes its name from the 40thparallel of Latitude that crosses the center of the country where both our pale malts and hops comes from.|
Aromas of spicy heather, lemon and lime combine with a toffee malt note . On the palate a blast of resinous fruity hop flavour is balanced by nutty rich malt all leading to a firm bitter finish.
Moderately spicy Indian dishes, roast beef or lamb, hard English style cheeses.
