Marmalade Pale Ale

For those that don’t like Marmalade, don’t worry this only describes the colour. This is a fairly dry American style pale ale is deep orange in colour to reflect the orange and mandarin hops used, there are some hints of toast and caramel from the darker malts balanced by a pronounced bitterness. This beer is dry enough for a hot day but has enough body and character to take you into the still of the night.

Food Pairing: Orange chocolate ice cream, pavlova and fruit salad and glazed ham
