Hello, Cardiff!

We’re taking over the taps over at The Head of Steam in Cardiff next week! The beers pouring in keg are:

Hello, Cardiff!

๐ŸŒŒ Space Viking (8.5%)
Saison
Brand New collaboration with Brew York. A light-bodied saison; dry, with flavours of white grape and pear, peppery notes, and a hint of cloves. 

๐ŸŠ Teeny Weeny Tangeriney (1.9%)
Orange Radler
The new beer of the summer, blended with Marlish Water’s Brazilian Orange.

๐Ÿฆ Manticore (4.5%)
India Pale Lager
A beer with the hopping rates more usually found in an IPA. Cold conditioned for 6 weeks in the style of a lager. Crisp, clean, and full of hops.

๐Ÿ’€ Cult Leader (5.5%)
Mosaic Pale Ale
A single hop pale ale with hints of blueberry, tangerine, papaya, grass, and bubblegum. This pale ale really puts the incredibly versatile Mosaic hops on show.

๐Ÿบ Blonde Star (4.1%)
Blonde Beer
Crisp and fresh, Blonde Star is light in body but certainly not in flavour. Brimful of lemon, grapefruit, and passion fruit. Refreshing and bready, with a bright finish.

๐Ÿ‹ Citra Star (4.1%)
Session IPA
Citra Star is loaded with grapefruit, lemon and lime. Massively hopped with Citra, but light-bodied enough to keep you coming back for more.

โ˜• Sublime Chaos (7%)
Breakfast Stout
Winner of ‘Best Stout in Europe’ at the World Beer Awards 2015. Anarchy’s dark, voluptuous breakfast stout is infused with Ethiopian Guji natural coffee beans from Stafford-based coffee roaster, Hasbean. Velvety and viscous, it’s balanced delicately with New Zealand hops.

New Beer: Manticore

Our newest beer has landed! Say hello to Manticore – a 4.5% India Pale Lager. This is a beer with the hopping rates more usually found in an IPA. Cold conditioned for 6 weeks in the style of a lager, you can expect it to be crisp, clean, and full of hops.

Launching in our taproom on Friday 24th May from 12pm, then available from selected beery outlets from next week.
