Six months or so into the Eyeball adventure we’re pleased to introduce the first addition to our beer family! Eyeball Orange is a dark lager that we’ve designed to cast a different perspective on the flavours of dark malts that we like so much – coffee, chocolate, and dark toast.
Firstly, the higher alcohol content (6.5% abv) brings a greater intensity to those flavours, and also a more substantial mouth feel. We’ve then off set these against greater bitterness, and paired them with a hint of citrusy orange.
The citrus notes come partly from the First Gold hops we’ve used for flavour and aroma, partly from additions of orange peel that add a citrus bitterness and background body to the beer.
We hope you like it as much as we do!
