A PUKKA English Pale Ale, launched at Western Sussex CAMRA May 13th 2015.
Jester Hops…some Beer Facts…
Grown by Charles Faram and initially launched in 2012 in tiny quantities, Jester is the first British hop with a flavour profile more akin to the very popular varieties grown in Australia, New Zealand and the US. Typically new world hops are bursting with citrus and tropical fruit flavours and aromas, with grapefruit, mango, lemon peel, and pineapple often present and high amounts of dry bitterness imparted into the beer.
Jester is a new world style hop with a British slant (particularly oily hop, with aromas of grapefruit and lychee when rubbed in your hand). When used in beer, more of a marmalade character develops.
Langham Jester 3.8 ABV is an all English ale, an EPA brewed with Maris Otter Malt and English Jester and Cascade Hops! It is a beautiful golden colour with sweet malt complexity leading to a punchy hop aroma of new world proportions, with flavour notes of grapefruit and tropical fruits. It has an intense, complex bitterness with fruity and herbal flavour.
