Gooseberry Ale

"The most convivial of ales" as described (and often imbibed) by 'The Bard' himself has become the adopted beer of the bohemian vagabonds of the Scottish arts scene. A pale golden brew, that is cold stored with gooseberries to deliver a sharp refreshing drinking experience.

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Colour

Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Aroma

Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Taste

Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

IBUs

IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

From the drinkers of Grozet

The first time I sipped on a Grozet was a few years ago, sitting on a hill overlooking the main stage at Knockengorroch. The perfect setting for the goosegog ale! Refreshing and sweet with loads of character, this has to be the best beer for enjoying with the Scottish sunshine.

– Jenny

Grozet hits your taste buds with an explosion of citrus flavours and dance a fruity rhumba on the tongue before being doused by the crisp, invigorating body of the beer. Best served cold as a witches tit, this singularly majestic lager is a rambunctious and refreshing companion.

– Neil Hepburn

Nice and sharp with slight gooseberry notes. Very refreshing and great to drink.
