Pentridge Pale Ale: A beer worth doing time for
Coburg Brewing Co are famous for their Coburg Lager, and have just released their second beer – the Pentridge Pale Ale – if you haven’t had the pleasure of sampling both yet, the tasting notes below will have you running down to the Post Office Hotel.
Coburg Lager is a dry, but slightly fruity lager with a clean biscuit malt flavor, subtle citrus fruit notes, and a gentle spicy hop character derived from the Czech-grown Saaz hops.
The Malts used are 78% Pilsner malt, 10% Australian wheat malt, 7% Munich malt and a pinch of roast barley. With Hops from US Cascade and Czech Saaz. The yeast used is Weihenstephaner from the world’s oldest brewery, all cool fermented at 10C.
The new Pentridge Pale Ale, is Coburg Brewing Co’s take on an American Pale Ale, golden in colour with a defined hop flavour and crisp malt profile.
Cascade and Ahtanum hops provide citrus and floral aromas with a smooth bitterness. The addition of Simcoe brings the aroma of pine needles and earthiness, perfectly balanced with a resinous backbone. Warrior then ties it all together.
Pale malt is coupled with Munich and Wheat to create a well round pale ale.
